A Concrete Castle Grows in the Caribbean

Wallpaper* has a brief-but-brilliant feature on Edgley Design, a London-based firm that's known for its streamlined, clever city dwellings—as well as this new creation, a modernist house on the tiny Grenadine island of Bequia. Inspired by typical Moroccan courtyard houses, the terraced concrete structure is designed to create shade and breeze through its high walls and internal courtyards. Details include ipe balustrades, glass doors that open straight to the pool terrace, four bedrooms divided among the two "towers," and hurricane-resistant concrete flooring. Gives a totally new meaning to "house on a hill."
