The Portico, Prospect Bay Beach, St James designed by Roldano Bellori is located in Barbados. Portico, which is opening its doors this year, is ideally located on the west coast of Barbados and draws attention from the outside by its sleek glass-curtain wall. On entrance once comes to a glass bridge above a reflecting pool, where water and stone organically merge with concrete and glass, replicating the surrounding outdoors in a contemporary way.
Vast spaces throughout the building add to the feeling of untamed nature and modernistic architecture blended into one – including a five-story open lobby, where the elevator stands out as an independent volume, yet integrated into the whole. Glass balustrades and bridges on each floor offer another level to the feeling of freedom one experiences inside the building by introducing a deeper dimension of invisible elegance.
