House in the dunes

After the beach-side house just beyond the dunes from earlier this week I though I'd share another. Just a little different. Or is it? What do you think? (And yes there are 4 bedrooms with bath in room and ensuite!) The Dune House by Norwegian architects JVA (Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL) and built on the shore in Thorpness, England is available for holiday rental.

Architecture needs relationship ... Architecture ought to be interesting rather than pretty ... Architecture should be exiting, not just satisfying ... Architecture is not just about the money.

How awesome seeing this in a dark landscape

Hello! I follow your blog. It's great!

Just a question. When I saw this post I thought how great it would be to rent a house like this in a place like that. And I think you mentioned that it is! How does one go on to get details?

Thank you!

Unusual and beautiful house; and I absolutely love the upstairs floor plan.

Wow! What a beautiful house! I love the scenery windows (like the one in the bedroom) and the amount of light you will get in the ground floor. Amazing view, and as a fan of wood, of course I like the wood installation on the inside :-) Great post!

Love your blog.
Don't like the house. I think, it looks more like a sore thumb in this environment. Interiors are lovely, I agree.

Amazing house. I live in the UK and I am going to try and find out if I can rent this place for a holiday. On the beach as well!

Amazing house, I'd love to stay there...
Despite the risks of creating too much demand, and for everyone who's asked the rental is on living-architecture.co.uk

I love the fact that there is a tub on each room, you can enjoy the same beautiful view while you're lying on bed or while you're taking a bath!
