PROJECT

AiF was commissioned to design a mountaintop retreat that would serve both and corporate leadership and friends for the owner, the CEO of a large commercial construction company from New York. The site is a rugged hilltop with unparalleled 360 degree views east to the Atlantic, west to the Caribbean, south to Nevis and north to the volcanic Mount Liamuiga, and the neighboring islands of St Barths, St Martins and Antigua.
