The house is situated in Thorpeness, England on the Suffolk coast, replacing an existing building at the site. The house is a holiday house for rental and is part of Living Architecture. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleTo get a planning permission it was important to relate to the existing, typical, British seaside strip of houses. The roofscape, the bedroom floor, somehow plays with the formal presence of these buildings, and also brings into mind a romantic remembrance of holidays at bed- and breakfasts while traveling through the UK.

The living area and the terraces are set into the dunes in order to protect it form the strong winds, and opens equally in all directions to allow for wide views. The corners can be opened by sliding doors; this will emphasize the floating appearance of the top floor. While the materiality of the ground floor; concrete, glass, aluminum, relates to the masses of the ground, the upper floor is a construction made of solid wood, cladding stained dark as the existing gables and sheds found in the area.Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Nils Petter DaleProject gallerySee allShow lessPrivate Brewery / FORMA Architectural StudioArticlesPFFF Inflatable Architecture CompetitionArticles Share 2010 Save this picture!© Nils Petter Dale+ 36 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard United Kingdomcenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs:  Nils Petter Dale Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Dune House / JVASave this projectSaveDune House / JVA “COPY” Architects: JVA Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Projects Photographs CopyAbout this officeJVAOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesUnited KingdomPublished on October 17, 2011Cite: “Dune House / JVA” 17 Oct 2011.
