The island of Mustique is located in the Grenadines, West Indies and now has 9 pristine beaches and 74 villas including Taliesin.Save this picture!© Tom Arban© Tom Arban Designed by Diamond Schmitt architects, the Taliesin residence is situated on a steep slope. The 20,000 square foot residence includes a gym, pool, spa, and activity rooms. The residence takes full advantage of its beautiful site allowing for an open-air lifestyle while providing luxurious seclusion and privacy. As a result, the main living space is organized to maximize the view of the ocean, and the living room, dining room, and kitchen all look out over the sea. Wide eaves for the residence give protection from the sun and rain. As there is no ground water on Mustique, all water is collected from the roofs. Consequently, the protective roof is of great symbolic value and of practical importance.Save this picture!© Tom Arban© Tom Arban The stunning roof gardens and exposed interior and exterior space creates a one of a kind island experience.
