Caribbean Architecture is a tapestry woven from the threads of history, culture, and natural environment. It reflects the amalgamation of diverse influences, including indigenous, African, European, and Asian, resulting from centuries of trade, colonisation, and migration. Each island in the Caribbean boasts a distinct architectural identity, shaped by its past and present, and Trinidad and Tobago is no exception.
The houses that form the centrepiece of Caribe Arch are from Trinidad and Tobago and hold a special place in the hearts of the locals, embodying the spirit of a bygone era. These buildings provide a poignant glimpse into the architectural landscape of yesteryear. Among them, the Gingerbread House and the houses of Belmont, characterised by their intricate wooden fretwork and ornate details, stand as iconic symbols of the region’s architectural heritage. Dating back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, these houses epitomise a fusion of Victorian, Caribbean, and East Indian architectural elements.
