beach dream home

After tropical cyclone Luis claimed her little St. Barts beach house in 1995, Alisa Thiry, former fashion editor of Elle UK set out to build her dream home on the site.  Symmetry was the foundation for the architectural process. Another wish was immediate visual access to the water.  

Step inside to see how she achieved her goals.  
arrive to a blue horizon line



clean lines front and back with a dash of whimsical pink



symmetry



spare yet inviting



white and wood make good partners



a kitchen that doesn't scream kitchen with seating for many 



write a letter, grab a cold drink



take a nap 



lounge here



get fresh here after a day in the sun



or step outside to a volcanic rock wall shower



tuck in with the doors open and breezes putting you to sleep


Using raw materials like stone and wood combined with clean lines makes for a warm combination.
Spare interiors and wide open spaces leave room for the beautiful blue outside.
It looks like perfection to me.
