New York based fashion and beauty photographer and burgeoning home designer, Wolfgang Ludes, has teamed up with architect Johannes Zingerle to create one stunning St. Bart’s abode. Built as a rental villa overlooking St. Jean beach, the home is divided into three distinct structures – each enjoying the same spectacular view, while also maintaining privacy from the others.
The main house consists of a spacious living room, dining room, kitchen and study area, all furnished with classic modern European seating, including dining chairs by Hans J. Wegner and armchairs by Antonio Citterio. The home’s wood details are composed of dark brown African wenge wood – utilized for the ceilings, wall panels and cabinets. A warm colored travertine floor stands in contrast to the dark wood and creates a visual link to the sandy beaches below the cliff-perched home.
The master suite is situated in the upper level and is accessed from the pool area via a stone staircase.
Two guest suites, situated on a lower level, are accessed via a floating stair that runs along the green andesite clad infinity edge of the pool.
Discretely tucked away in hidden corners and private crannies throughout the property, are outdoor showers and tubs. When it comes to a Caribbean paradise, this rental property has left few stones unturned. For those interested in a stay, visit Premium Island Vacations.
