Dune House, Thorpeness. View from the beach.
This house is part of a series of rental holiday homes constructed for the organisation Living Architecture. The roofscape relates to the local seaside vernacular, whilst the glazed ground floor, set into the dunes, provides a contrast, protects the house from the wind and offers a full view of the East Anglian coastal landscape. The corners open with sliding doors.
The ground floor is made with concrete, glass and aluminium, while the top is made with laminated timber slabs, stained black.
