Interview By:

— In a nutshell, how would you describe Atelier House?

Sean: “Atelier House is a unique vacation villa on Barbados. It brings a touch of relaxed contemporary chic to an island that sometimes displays a bit of faded glory. Our thinking when conceiving the building was to create a space that echoed a comfortable art gallery that one could live in.”

— What was your inspiration to rent Atelier House to vacation guests?

Sean: “We built Atelier House on a virgin piece of land overlooking a stunning mahogany wood with beautiful views to the sea. We always wanted to build a house from scratch and, once we saw this plot, knew it had to be here. The design flowed from the topography of the land and our admiration for South American contemporary modern, the chief exponent of which is, in our view, Marcio Kogan.

We decided to rent it out to discerning vacation guests because we got such an amazing response to it from visitors and wanted to share the experience with others.”

— How would you describe the style of the vacation villa?

Sean: “Contemporary tropical modern. The layout is designed to maximize the views from the plot so the shape of the building follows the lines of the boundary. We separated day/living space from night/sleeping space for reasons of practicality — i.e. when the kids are in bed the adults can play without disturbing them!

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 some space to breathe.
 The dimensions of openings, walkways and rooms is intended to provide comfortable mobility such that a guest should never feel pinched for space.”

— Please tell us a bit about the facilities, amenities and services offered at Atelier House.

Sean: “The gardens are planted with indigenous shrubs, trees and palms and the plot measures half an acre.

The villa has a large infinity pool measuring 9x5 meters and sun loungers dotted around it. It has outdoor eating, lounging and cooking space and a roof terrace linking the mezzanine and master bedroom suite.

Each booking comes with a house keeper and a chef can be booked by arrangement.”

— To you personally, what is so special about Atelier House?

Sean: “Atelier has been a labour of love for Amanda and I. Working closely with the architect, we shaped the house we wanted to live in ourselves and, in so doing, have created a landmark building for Barbados.

Visitors are genuinely amazed at the quality of space, light, finish and of course the views. Seeing people really positively affected by the building, by something that we’ve created, is a very special feeling.”

— Is the house suitable for families with kids?

Sean: “The house is ideal for for kids. There is lots of space with smooth floors and of course there is ample space to play with the terraces and the front and back gardens. Parents should note, however, that the gully edge is a steep drop of 2-3 metres. Regardless, most guests that have stayed at Atelier have had children with them.”
