Although this private residence features elements of classic Bermuda style, OBMI gave it mixed character, blending contemporary and traditional design to make it truly one of a kind. Its name has been inspired from the exotic experiences that unfold within the home.
We created the staircase to be a showpiece; Iriko wood steps seem to float in the sunlight that floods the double-height ceiling space from the trio of operable windows. Above, open dark wood rafters evoke a ceiling reminiscent of the traditional Bermuda vernacular. We custom-designed a cedar front door to echo the existing windows in the living room, reiterating the superb quality and rich design. The result is more than a home; it alludes to a place-making experience.
