RENOVATION AND NEW BUILD
Located along a picturesque beachfront property on the south coast of Barbados, Sea Breeze Beach House comprises 122 guest rooms, five restaurants, three pools, a gym, a conference centre, and several more intimate spaces for hosting private events.
This project was part renovation, part new build. Because we believe in cohesive design, where each area works harmoniously with the other, we wanted to create a seamless transition throughout the property. The rooms, restaurants, lounge areas and walkways all express the same key aspects, without losing any of their intimacy or individuality.
Far from a generically Caribbean experience, the new design builds upon the theme of tropical modern, inspired by traditional Barbadian culture. Thanks to a neutral base palette and clean lines that exude charm through the introduction of colour, the rooms feel like a tropical chic beach house. We used four main colour schemes in the rooms’ accents, accessories and artwork.
All the art we chose is local and plays an integral role in the design of the space; we tried as much as possible
to use local artisans, labour and materials, and even repurposed a few mahogany trees that the new building displaced. In good design, nothing goes to waste!
