Atelier House is a unique villa in Barbados that has been designed following a contemporary, modern and elegant style. The building was conceived to create a space that echoed a comfortable art gallery that one could live in.
The layout is designed to maximize the views from the plot, so the shape of the building follows the lines of the boundary. The day and living room space is separated from the sleeping space to preserve the highest level of quietness. The interiors use a simple palette of limestone and white painted walls to provide unity in all spaces and allow carefully chosen pieces of art and furniture to breathe. The large open areas, walkways and rooms provide comfortable mobility. Atelier House is the perfect place if you like avant-garde architecture and simple modern furniture.
Atelier House sits on a breezy ridge of ancient mahogany wood that looks out to glorious sunsets over the Caribbean. It is just 500 m from the platinum beaches on the west coast of Barbados. The house has a large infinity pool that measures 9x5 m and will allow you to contemplate beautiful views of the sea.
Atelier House is a spacious villa with extense areas that lead to the exterior and is situated at the top of a hill with unbeatable views of the ocean.

This peaceful location, just a few minutes away from the beach and Holetown, is the perfect Caribbean getaway. The villa is also surrounded by gardens and indigenous trees, bushes, palm trees and other unique vegetation. Here, relaxing comes easy in such a calm and privileged surrounding.

Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, has been declared World Heritage by UNESCO. The English-style harbor dates back to the XVII century and was an important trade destination and a stop for transatlantic boats that came from Africa. The Garrison area of the city is also worth a visit. This area of Bridgetown has a special interest for its historical value. It was a strategic military point for over 100 years for the British military to defend the interests of the colony. In 2011, both Bridgetown and Garrison became part of UNESCO’s World Heritage.
