American house in the sand dunes

I find myself walking in the dunes staring at houses that front the sea from Australia to England and now I'm feeling the sand between my toes in Massachusetts. A family home in Aquinnah by Hutker Arcitects. It's a modern take on the simple New England beach vernacular. No big old money mansion here. It sits quietly in its surroundings with its shingles slowly greying. Just a cosy, family home with a big picture windows framing what it is all about ... the view across the waving dune grasses to the sea. Yes please.

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.

Stepped House

Minimalism again? Oh yes! But instead of stark, cold white there is a richness, a glow. Simple clean lines but multi-layered with different surfaces and textures. Spartan but elegant. Who said minimalism was cold? What is devoid of surface  pattern is enriched by the interplay of materials. Stepped House by Australian architects Russell & George.

Belgian minimalism

Continuing my fascination with minimalist homes around the world. A Belgian mansion style house that has seen better days, lost some of its character with one too many renovations. The old exterior is kept but at the back the minimalist magic begins. The renovation was about aligning and subtracting. Consolidating and eliminating. It's black but it's white. It has historical references but modern credentials. It's about light and space and a new life. It's House J & M by Bruno Vanbesien.
