GoldenEye Hotel Oracabessa Jamaica – Low Cay Beach and Lagoon Villas
GoldenEye is a world famous hotel located on the north east coast of Jamaica. In the 1950s it was the home of Ian Fleming and where he created James Bond and wrote the 007 novels. After Fleming’s death GoldenEye was purchased by Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records, who enlarged GoldenEye to create a 70 bedroom boutique hotel comprising Huts, Cottages and Villas set in a rain forest garden with Beach and Lagoon waterside frontages.
In 2019 we were Architects for the extension of ‘The Blue House’, situated on Low Cay Beach providing a spacious Lounge/Dining Room, an additional Bathroom/Cloak Room with an outside shower. The extension is Jamaican vernacular style, complementary to the existing Beach Villa with interiors featuring polished concrete floors, bespoke joinery and Royal Hut fabrics. The Lounge area has pairs of 8 feet high double doors complete with jalousie shutters providing a panoramic view of the beach, allowing the cooling sea breeze to obviate the need for air conditioning.
In 2020 we were also appointed to act as Consultants to work alongside Ann Hodges, an award winning Jamaican Architect to create some additional Lagoon Villas.
