That whole greenery trend? It’s healthy. A recent study found that living in a greener area inspired by nature improved the wellbeing and quality of life of people, as well reduced stress levels and boost moods.
Renowned developers, architects and interior designers have caught onto the healing power of nature and delivering an oasis of greenery (snapshots below). Upon interest, we can chat through specifics and provide additional examples both built and under construction.
Alaia Belize: Located along the tranquil Caribbean Sea, owners and hotels guests of Alaia Belize will enjoy exclusive residences designed to highlight the splendor of its natural surroundings. With interiors curated by renowned Brazilian designer Debora Aguiar, who is known for her eco-luxury aesthetics, residences will feature approximately 70 percent of fabrics and raw materials from Belize, including rustic marbles and stones, reclaimed wood, linen curtains, textured beige walls and earth-toned hues. Designed by i.E. Architecture, the master-planned waterfront resort and residential property will span over 20+ acres covered by a plethora of greenery and lush landscaping to complement the awe-inspiring views of the Caribbean Sea.
Rock House: Everything about this upcoming residential resort in Turks and Caicos—from the interior design and architecture to the standout amenities—will be inspired by its breathtaking natural surroundings. AD100 interior designer Shawn Henderson and local Coast Architects will incorporate the native limestone from the cliffs that Rock House sits upon in limestone feature walls that will wrap from the cottages’ exteriors to interiors. The floor-to-ceiling windows, 100’ main infinity pool and jetty beach club will all maximize the views of and proximity to the turquoise Atlantic Ocean.
Oil Nut Bay is a sustainable, eco-luxury resort community tucked away in the secluded North Sound of Virgin Gorda, BVI. Oil Nut Bay’s developer, David Johnson of Victor International, was inspired by each of Oil Nut Bay’s unique and vastly different home site’s topography and vowed to build each villa in harmony with nature. Oil Nut Bay’s most recent project, Oil Nut Bay Residence, designed by M+T AD, drew its inspiration from the site’s plunging views of the Caribbean Sea and created the home’s one-of-a-kind design plan to offer each and every corner of the villa a view. Built directly into the hillside, Oil Nut Bay Residence features an entrance that sits on the roof, floating staircases and a complete façade made of hurricane-proof glass to not obstruct views.
