Oliver Messel’s genius was to merge the divisions between the outdoors and indoors, ushering in a more modern style of Caribbean architecture. His utilised perspective to make rooms appear larger, with windows and doors carefully positioned to ‘frame’ perfect views. His use of slender Greek columns, flattened arches, elaborate plaster mouldings, latticework, jalousied wooden shutters and overgrown jungle-like gardens all combined into his ‘Gingerbread’ style. Another trademark was to have the front door open to look straight through the house to the view beyond. His homes still awe and inspire guests to this day.
Les Jolies Eaux, Mustique
Princess Margaret’s former home on the island of Mustique is perhaps Messel’s most well-known project, with the Princess noting, “I’m very pleased with what Oliver did for Les Jolies Eaux. This is my house, the only square inch in the world I own, and Oliver was a major contributor to it.” The villa is much sough-after for due to the 270-degree dual Atlantic and Caribbean views as well as its two swimming pools, heritage and unique design.
With no original surviving buildings on Mustique, Messel was given freedom to conceive a style all of his own. The resulting new ‘Gingerbread Style’ took its cues from the West Indies, the American Deep South and French influences from Haiti, which he visited for inspiration. It is best-seen in photographer Patrick Lichfield’s former home Obsidian.
