The Moonshine Ridge collection exemplifies Apes Hill Barbados’ commitment to preserving and honoring nature while embracing innovation and sustainability for the future.
The design philosophy encapsulates a timeless, refreshing, and boldly modern interpretation of Caribbean living, thoughtfully incorporating elements of the island’s heritage. Indigenous natural stone sourced directly from the Apes Hill grounds adds a striking contrast, paying homage to the local environment. Douglas Luke, from Elements Architecture and the designer of the Moonshine Ridge Collection, emphasized the growing desire of younger clients to connect intimately and consistently with the natural world.
A testament to the beauty of nature, the elevated location of Apes Hill provides a captivating experience that engages multiple senses. From the gentle trade winds that grace the eastern side to the enchanting gullies, gardens, and nature vistas, every aspect is designed to celebrate the surrounding environment. The high ceilings and expansive glass doors create a seamless fusion of indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing for a harmonious integration. The focal point of this experience is outdoor entertainment, privacy, intimacy, and the immersive embrace of the tropical surroundings, encapsulating the laid-back yet luxurious lifestyle that epitomizes the essence of Barbados.
