Located in Anguilla, British West Indies, Villa Kishti is a wonderful contemporary retreat by Cecconi Simone Inc. and Frank Alfred Hamilton. By swapping the concept of the home as a shelter that isolates its dwellers from the outdoors, with that of the home that facilitates a perfect communication between the two spaces, the architects achieved a truly spectacular result.
This is a Balinese-inspired residence with a tripartite design that comprises a luxurious master suite, three self-contained villas, and a central hub. The three villas are set in a fan-like shape, and they each feature their own lounge areas that extend to outdoor decks, as well as individual kitchenettes, master bedrooms with en-suite facilities, and powder rooms.
The villa’s master suite can be reached from a living/dining area and flaunts its own exterior terrace. It also has a bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers, a lounge, and a cozy sleeping area.
Then there is the central hub, which holds the main gathering spaces that communicate and seem to flow into each other. These include the living/dining area and the kitchen, which all boast a lovely palette of colors, textures and materials. All interiors are sophisticated and tasteful, with custom furnishings, uncluttered spaces, and carefully chosen accessories.
