Be the change you want to see in the world


The overabundant generosity of the sun, which we had been taught to fear, has become our ally for all hot water needs, including washing machine and dishwasher. It also provides electricity that is free from the carbon diktat.

Wind and vegetation invite themselves in when coolness is needed instead.

Abundant water is treated with the utmost care rather than indifference: it is collected for use in the home and garden.

Waste is sorted.

Building materials with a limited footprint, such as polished concrete, were favored without compromising solidity, aesthetics or comfort.

The garden favors endemic species, which tell us what Martinique was like before it was shaped by man.
