Villa Kishti by Frank Alfred Hamilton and Cecconi Simone Inc.
Designed by Frank Alfred Hamilton and Cecconi Simone Inc., Villa Kishti is a beautiful private retreat in Anguilla in the British West Indies. This luxury home challenges traditional ideas of shelter and nature as separate domains. Its exterior and interior are blend in to create a seamless interplay of interior design, architecture and landscaping.
The design of Villa Kishti is composed of a central hub, a master suite and three self-contained villas. All of these areas are arranged in a fan-like plan. All the spaces are uncluttered and carefully organized to enhance the site lines.
From the architects: “Villa Kishti is a meditative, Balinese-inspired private retreat in Anguilla, British West Indies. 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.”
“The master suite, accessed internally from the living-dining area, contains a sleep area, lounge with outdoor terrace and ensuite 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 ensuite. Custom furnishings, custom millwork, finishes and accessories harmonize with the subdued, contemporary, Balinese-influenced expression of the rest of the residence.”
