Sugar Beach Hotel & Villas

Hidden within the Pitons on the island of St Lucia you will find the Sugar Beach Hotel. The luxury holiday resort was once a sugar plantation and has since been transformed into a contemporary beach resort, with a focus on retaining its original intimate charm. 

IQ was commissioned to design, supply, and install the architectural glazing and louvre roof systems when multiple villas on the premises were completely refurbished. Each of the villas sits 20ft above sea level, overlooking white sand beaches and boasting unrivalled views of the Caribbean ocean. 

Slim framed aluminium casement windows were used in conjunction with the minimal windows® sliding doors powder-coated for an exact colour match, the result was a completely cohesive design throughout both interior and exterior.  

Sliding doors grant access from the open plan living area to the outside, ultimately leading to a private infinity pool. Installing automated louvre roof systems in these areas meant that guests could enjoy the weather, whatever the time of day, whilst benefiting from some shade.

The louvre roof systems are automated, the angle of the blades can be adjusted at the touch of a button, or automatically set to rotate as the sun rises and falls. 

The louvre roof systems are finished in a colour scheme to match the exterior cladding of each villa. The architectural glazing methods truly enhance these rich materials, resulting in stunning individual villas, perfectly in keeping with the surrounding environment.
