Felicite Island Residences
REIDsteel were first approached by the Félicité Island Development Company in July 2009 to carry out the design, fabrication and shipping of the structural steel framing for the roof and fascias of the first of a series of designer homes.
Nestling on a small segment of unspoilt Félicité, one of the inner Seychelles islands, the development will consist of 28 Bond-style residences, each with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, swimming pool ceilings and private helipad.
Renowned architect Richard Hywel Evans describes his vision for Zil Payson as ‘a whole new resort standard in terms of vision, design, experience and sustainability, crafted from indigenous materials that melt into a landscape of staggering beauty’.
The villas are now nearing completion, and are for sale on a 99-year lease starting from a snip at £1.9 million.
