THE INDEPENDENT – Inspiring Home of the Week: Bahamas getaway built on a sand dune

28 December 2017

By: Megan Townsend

Chad Oppenheim of Oppenheim Architecture has self-built a house which rests on a sand dune on Harbour Island, Bahamas.

The home, created as a retreat for Oppenheim and his wife, is designed to interfere with nature as little as possible, seamlessly blending in to both the dune and the island’s tropical forests. Its location atop the dune provides impressive views of the north Atlantic.

House on a Dune is two storeys and consists of a completely open central space that allows connectivity through the home. Within this pavilion the living and dining areas open onto verandahs which are well protected from the elements by deep overhangs in the gabled roof.”
