House on a Dune / Oppenheim Architecture + Design

Architect Chad Oppenheim, who has designed homes for the likes of movie director Michael Bay and projects for Pharrell, recently completed what he calls “House on a Dune,” a minimalistic, elegant and comfortable beach house that blends into its breathtaking surroundings in Harbour Island, Bahamas. The spectacular 3,000-square-foot waterfront private residence was designed to reconnect its inhabitants with nature, encouraging a greater consciousness of the elements and their manifestations.

In a time when architecture has become fixated with computer generated forms and over-the-top modern design, House on a Dune is elegant in its simplicity – designed to heighten ones experience of the beautiful island nature that surrounds the home and made to inspire and maximize pleasurable moments.

Light Matters: Creating Walls of Light. Modernism induced a shift in lighting away from luminaires and towards invisible light sources that render spaces in a purer (forgive the pun) light.

Light Matters: Creating Walls of Light

For the first time, lit walls were used to define rooms and to structure architecture. Today I’d like to explore early prototypes – including Philip Johnson’s Brick House and the Seagram Building – and discuss how their lighting techniques continue to influence architecture today. When Philip Johnson remodeled the windowless bedroom in his Brick Guest House, he installed a series of plaster vaults from the ceiling, which he then emphasized with lighting. In collaboration with the American lighting specialist Richard Kelly he developed the idea of creating a glow of light that washes the walls.

With the request from the client for an atmosphere of festive glamour, pfarré lighting design created the illumination of interior spaces to encompass a total of 40,000 m2. They augmented the work of the interior designers by designing many lights, light systems, light objects and crystal chandeliers manufactured specifically for the project. More images and their description after the break. Another part of the commission was to come up with a design for the appearance of the Palace exterior as a whole during the evening and nighttime hours. A focal lighting element in the main foyer is a 21 meter long and 5 meter high crystal chandelier weighing approx. 15,000 kilograms. Forty-three meters high and 50 meters across, the 1,850-seat concert hall affords visitors an impressive spatial experience. Illumination: Small Olympic Hall / pfarré lighting design.

With a capacity of 3600 places, and an alternative to its ‘grand sister’, the small olympic hall, is embedded carefully in the protected Olympic Park ensemble as it almost disappears.

With pfarré lighting design working closely with the architects, the attic has been detailed to house a linear, dimmable lighting system. The huge notch, cut into the hill, which covers the building, was underlined with light on both sides. More images and their description after the break. Thanks to the light surface materials, the lighting atmosphere is very pleasant, inviting, and glare-reduced. Like a “plaza”, the outdoor space can be used for all kind of events; the lighting intensity can be adjusted. The sober, minimalistic interior design is based on just two materials.
