BAHAMAS HOUSE/HARBOUR ISLAND by Oppenheim Architecture+Design

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Article source: Oppenheim Architecture+Design

Harbour Island is a relaxed yet luxurious getaway perched in the surreal cerulean waters of the Atlantic edge of the Great Bahama bank. In this earnest and timeless place, the architecture for this private residence is conceived as simultaneously powerful, yet comfortable; primitive, yet innovative; casual, yet elegant; raw, yet refined. The result is a sensual and sensitive experience, reduced to its essence through the use of elemental forms and sincere materiality and detailing. The most dramatic view of the ocean is obtained towards the crest of the dunes, the location of this modest home.

Bahamas Villa by Marco Acerbis Studio

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

The villa is located at the centre of the garden allowing the building to naturally grow from the earth and to stand out like a beautiful tropical flower. The ground floor slab is suspended a foot off the ground allowing natural ventilation and cooling. The concrete mass of the slabs together with the swimming pool water are natural cooling elements that will absorb heat during the day providing a fresh and relaxing environment. The scheme provides for a very open yet protected floor arrangement allowing for a confortable inside outside living environment where boundaries are reduced to the minimum and enjoyment of an ever changing villa is enhanced to the maximum with balance and elegance.
