Villa Kishti is a meditative, Balinese-inspired private retreat in Anguilla, British West Indies, designed by Toronto architect Frank Alfred Hamilton, who spent four years on the project (2005-2009). The residence challenges traditional notions of shelter and nature as separate domains, with interior and exterior blurred in a seamless interplay of interior design, architecture and landscape design.
Villa Kishti’s tripartite design is composed of a central hub, master suite and three self-contained villas, arranged in fan-like plan. The central hub contains the principal gathering spaces of the residence – the living-dining area and kitchen – which flow into each other in a unified palette of natural materials, tones and textures. Spaces are uncluttered and carefully calibrated to enhance site lines. The living-dining area is detailed with custom furnishings and edited accessories while the kitchen is fitted with custom millwork and integrated Corian counters and backsplash. Toronto-based interior design firm Cecconi Simone Inc. was hired by the client for the selection of furnishings, finishes and fixtures.
The master suite, accessed internally from the living-dining area, contains a sleep area, lounge with outdoor terrace and en-suite with indoor and outdoor showers. The suite is appointed with custom millwork, custom furnishings and subtle Balinese accents.
Across the central hub from the master suite, each of the three self-contained villas encompasses a lounge area with outdoor deck, kitchenette, powder room and master bedroom with en-suite. Custom furnishings, custom millwork, finishes and accessories harmonize with the subdued, contemporary, Balinese-influenced expression of the rest of the residence.
Long Bay Villas in Anguilla is a resort that is comprised of three distinct, sparkling white villas, inspired by the design themes of sea, sand and sky. This is the ultimate in luxury and indulgence. Each secluded island hideaway has its own infinity edge pool with Jacuzzi, an outdoor dining pavilion and private access to beach with an ocean front beach house, and is perfectly private. Terraces that open to the infinity edge pool and the ocean beyond induce a natural lightness of being, while ivory, rust, burgundy, pewter and muted green interiors keep guests happily anchored to earth. Featuring four master suites, a two-storey design with vaulted ceilings and spacious interiors at 6,500 square feet, this villa will certainly not disappoint those looking to vacation in a relaxing, luxurious setting.
