Audemars Piguet Opens a New AP House at Diamond Genesis in Saint Barthélemy

Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Audemars Piguet has inaugurated its first AP House in Saint Barthélemy in collaboration with our long-standing local partner Diamond Genesis. Nestled in the town of Gustavia, this one-of-a-kind AP House will be the destination for Audemars Piguet lovers seeking leisure and hospitality in the Caribbean.

Designed as an authentic home away from home for lovers of the brand, the AP House concept was created in collaboration with some of the Manufacture’s most valued clients.

The result is a space where the comfort of home and the warmth of friendship take priority. St.Barts’ AP House boasts a 142 square-metre space designed with Audemars Piguet’s sophisticated and contemporary styling in mind, but with an earthier twist paying homage to its island location. Playing with contrasts, the space seamlessly marries interior and exterior design to recreate the island’s warm and welcoming ambience.

The dining area takes an air of pergola with its darkened oak slats decorating walls, floor and part of the ceiling. In contrast, the mirrored walls add depth and variegated plays of light, as they reflect the ocean visible from the dining room’s windows.

The Caribbean inspiration continues in the choice of aged oak outdoor furniture, furthering the space’s relaxing atmosphere. The mezzanine floor opening onto the bar area offers a cosy nest for clients to relax, while the exposed white rafters typical of Caribbean houses complete the design with their lofty and traditional flair.

Every detail has been carefully thought of, including the curtains in burgundy and blue hues inspired by the vivid colours of the Code 11.59 by Audemars Piguet timepieces released last year.
