Tour Chad Oppenheim’s Minimalist Masterpiece on Harbour Island

Share this Post!

Chad Oppenheim is one of Miami's greatest architects. He forged the way for a new generation of modernists in Miami Beach, popularizing the loft concept and stark, white minimalist designs. Now, he's created a serene waterfront masterpiece in Harbour Island, Bahamas called House on a Dune, that turns the island's colonial heritage on its head.

The private residence is 3,000 square feet but feels much bigger, due to its connection with the outdoors. Centered around a wide, open breezeway, which can be closed off with sliding, impact-resistant doors that open on the east and west sides framing views of the ocean greenery and sky, the house offers simultaneous flexibility and simplicity.

A nod to nature isn't the only thing making this home eco-friendly. All the materials selected for House on a Dune were chosen for their environmental sensitivity like recycled cedar, reused Ipe, concrete blocks, and milk paint, a non-toxic, zero-VOC paint made from all-natural materials.
