Villa Marbella, Phase I
Although traditional in feel, this Guest House resists categorization. An arched portico inspired by eastern architecture and constructed of thick sand-colored walls invite deep shadows in the Caribbean sun. This simple building anchored with an octagonal tower admits natural light into a central hall that is crowned by a celebrative frieze of Pompeian-inspired motifs with encrusted shells. The entire guest complex in this property is comprised of the guesthouse with a basement housing cisterns to collect rainwater, pool and outdoor dining pavilion, a trellised gazebo, pedimented-niched-pavilions and tall retaining walls. All these architectural elements are arranged to create an outdoor entertaining precinct off the guesthouse quarters and planned as Phase I of an overall project which will incorporate a main residence in Phase II of the project.
