The Moonshine Ridge collection reflects the Apes Hill Barbados passion for preserving and celebrating nature whilst innovating and repurposing for a sustainable future.
The design approach embodies a timeless fresh, clean and boldly modern interpretation of Caribbean living while paying homage to the island’s heritage with contrasting elements of indigenous natural stone taken straight from the grounds of Apes Hill itself. “The increasing vulnerability of the natural environment is resonating with younger clients and they want to connect and interact with it in a much more intimate and consistent way” cited Douglas Luke, of Elements Architecture and designer of the Moonshine Ridge Collection.
A Celebration of Nature
The remarkable elevation at Apes Hill, which sits just a short distance from the island’s highest peak, allows for a multi-sensory experience involving the trade winds from the east, indigenous gullies, gardens and nature views. High ceilings and extra-large glass doors create a fully open space, blending inside/outside.
The focal experience features outdoor entertaining, privacy, intimacy and the integration of the natural tropical environment to enable the gloriously, laid-back yet luxurious lifestyle that so epitomizes the island of Barbados.
