Project Update: Construction Underway in St. Kitts
Construction is in full swing for our St. Kitts project, which you can see here nestled in among the dunes and indigenous flora. To honor and reflect the natural beauty of the surrounding seascape, our design incorporates neutral-toned Ludowici clay tiles for all of the home’s many roof planes. At present, the tiles are 50% installed, and already their impeccable craftsmanship is lending an old-world touch to the home—a worthy complement to the island’s breathtaking landscape. A base coat of stucco on the house adds another element of textural interplay with the layers of clay tile.
The view from the roof says it all: pristine skies bathe the site in sunlight, while frothy waves—tinged an unmistakable Caribbean blue—fall ashore at the base of rugged volcanic mountains. Standing atop the structure and looking out over Christophe Harbor, there isn’t a breath of question as to why our client chose this destination.
To create a seamless flow from outside in, we have focused on crafting a cohesive design that incorporates elements of the exterior in our interior plans. Stonework arriving from Russia in March will comprise not only the plinth (base) of the exterior, but also a stunning mosaic feature within.
The pool and jacuzzi, whose structures are now fully installed, will be the perfect spot to take in the sun-drenched vistas. From within the home itself, abundant mahogany windows made by Unilux provide a nearly unbroken view of the surroundings. Mechanicals for the home are also underway, ready to transition this structure into a functional home.
We would like to express our continued gratitude to Bennett Hofford Caribbean Construction for their tireless work on this project from the ground up. Stay tuned; we will be back with further updates.
