Description

Sandbank Ocean Villa on the famous Pink Sands Beach on Harbour Island has a design that utilizes Bahamian colonial-era forms and natural materials to conceive a house that reflects the island's sense of place. Among the innovations of the design is the ipe-wood shutter system, which wraps around each of the three small, function-specific wings (sleeping, living, kitchen). The indoor-outdoor living room. The white stucco walls of the building's concrete-block core are surrounded by living-space-extending porches. With its beams, rafters and window elements exposed, the space has a decidedly architectural aesthetic.
The interior designer's selection of furnishings includes Indian sofas and tables and Kravet sofa fabric. The double-height library has built-in bookshelves constructed of ipe, which is termite-resistant. Its stair-and-catwalk-balustrade design was inspired by that of the area's old colonial cottages. Where the shelves meet the pickled-cypress ceiling, the architects concealed an air-conditioning system and up lighting. On the side that faces the ocean, an ipe deck reaches from the edge of the house to the swimming pool, connecting to the dune garden and steps down to the beach.
The idea of the master bedroom is to sleep under the grand canopy of the peaked roof, lulled to sleep by island cross breezes from the bay and ocean beyond. A wood wall separates the bedroom form the bath.
At the oceanfront elevation, the projecting wings of the kitchen, right, and master bedroom, left, establish a patio space with a trellis. As the architects intended, the unfurnished ipe walls and cedar roof create a subdued visual counterpoint to the greens of the organic landscape treatment, the work of the owner, and the Bahamian sky.
