The architectural inspiration for the design of 44 Salt Cedar is the Anglo-Caribbean genre as typified by the work of Oliver Messel on Barbados and Mustique, brilliantly reinterpreted for the Kiawah setting by architect Losse Knight of LFK Architects LLC. In keeping with the Island Pavilion Style, the mass of the home is broken into two primary elements, the Main House and the Master Suite, which are connected by the Entry Bridge and open breezeway below, which leads to the garden. The 2 story Stair Hall and Gallery accentuates the dramatic arrival experience. The Living, Dining, Porch and kitchen areas are visually completely open and present an uniquely casual space for everyday life or major entertaining. The cloistered Master Suite is accessed from the entry through a private gallery. Master Suite includes a Den/Office, a morning balcony overlooking the garden, generous closets and a spectacular Spa/Bath. The second floor of the Main House includes a Guest Master and two additional Guest Suites. An elevator serves both floors of the Main House from the Lower Entry off the Breezeway. The south facing orientation and open view over a tranquil lagoon make this a light filled and airy space favored by the prevailing ocean breeze.
