Tropical Tranquility at Havenridge

 

Nestled in the hills of the Northern Range of Trinidad and Tobago lies the picturesque village of Santa Cruz, home to a multitude of tropical flora and fauna. This beautiful location is home to the newly converted, hideaway eco-retreat, Havenridge. The rich mix of textures, patterning and colours incorporated in the design allows the guest a glimpse into the diverse culture of the twin island republic, while paying homage to the surrounding natural environment.

 

 
The easy, open flow of the bungalow reflects the openness of its surroundings. The interior colour choices drew inspiration from the exterior natural environment, while materials were influenced by local cultural traditions such as the plaids from Bélé/Belair dance.

Rich textures, patterns and prints pay homage to the rich cultural and ethnic diversity of the islands' people.
