Surfer's Paradise on Spyglass Hill


Surfers want to wake up and surf. They want to look outside and see the waves, knowing that in minutes they'll be leaping to the sand with a board under their...

That Sinking Feeling

The flat island of Anegada is selfish when it comes to its sandy terrain and bountiful beachfronts, which rest cautiously on its deep coral base. Without much warning, it takes wha...

Editor's Letter

Let the good times roll.


November marks a month for resurgence in the Virgin Islands.  After a long, hot and testing summer, it's time to bring some life back to these islands. I'm ready to see the waters–from Sir Francis Drake Channel to St Thomas Harbour–full of activity. I'm looking forward to people-watching and weekends full of events too good to...

Boat Yard Blues

The salesman looked at me with an indulgent eye. "We're not selling boats," he said, "we're selling dreams." I had asked about a particular customer of his whom I knew to be interested in a boat far beyond his capabilities as a sailor. "The details don't matter," the salesman had said. "he's not buying a hull and deck, he's buying freedom and adventure."

Idealistic Architecture

Architecture is fun. We become architects because we want to create, use our imagination, enjoy our job. And with every project, no matter how ordinary or mundane, we instinctively aim to build in some poetry, romance and adventure.

At architecture school, we're taught to conceptualise ñ to develop a guiding concept right at the beginning of a project, which then i...

A Cookbook for Daydreamers

Many of us aspire to be chefs, hence the popularity of cooking shows and celebrity cooks. Yet, I don't believe the idea of working in Gordon Ramsay's abusive kitchen appeals to most. Instead, some of us dream of running a gastro pub or a B&B or, in my case, a soup and salad counter. The pleasure of cooking is making food that pleases others–hearing guest...

Blind Love

Gregory Smith wakes before sunrise to begin his day. Alongside his wife, Merreth, he ventures out to their two plots of farmland while it's still dark outside. Merreth makes herself busy by weeding the gardens and harvesting their crop; Gregory prepares the soil, hoes the rows and waters the plants. Eighteen years ago, this might not have seemed like an extraordinary feat. But eighte...

Own a Home? Join the Club

Recently, a client handed me a fairly thick document, with a look of trepidation on his face. It was the by-laws of the Homeowner's Association (HOA), and Declaration of Covenants, for a property he was buying. It's easy to be intimidated by these documents. Many people don't even read them. Some people hate the whole concept.
I decided, therefore, to compile a...

Artists' Corner: A Window Into The Past

In the old days, Virgin Islanders were industrious–they were independent and lived off the land. They often used horses and mules to lug timber and large loads up steep hillsides. They grew their own coffee and cocoa; they often made their own clothes. And when smiling school children walked home from class, they'd often take off their shoes, kn...

Awaking a Sleeping Prison

Her Majesty's Prison in Road Town may be mostly inactive, but its long-standing presence and history in the heart of BVI's capital makes it far from forgotten.  Essentially abandoned in 1995 after 221 years of continuous use, the facility still stands strong with all of its walls and cells–and even surrounding barbed wire–largely intact. What a sit...

Designing from the Inside Out

Interior Design is typically interpreted based on the end aesthetic result; however, the technical process and contrast of decoration versus design are often misunderstood. Debi Carson explains design as a multi-faceted process, a culmination of ideas, experience, resources and goals. "Interior design is the coordination and development of the interior spaces of...
