Sandbank Ocean Villa

Living Area: 15,360 sq. ft.
Property Type: Single Family Home
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 islands 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.
