The Dune House

The Dune House is a stunning reinvention and reinterpretation of the English seaside dwelling and is designed by the Norwegian architects JVA. The roof, clad in a lightly tinted orange steel alloy, reflects the changing colours of the sea and sky and the panoramic windows on the ground floor offer views of the sea, whilst giving the sense of the house being nestled in the dunes.
JVA wanted to create more than just a space for sleeping upstairs, so each of the four double bedrooms has a bathtub in it, with windows carefully positioned so that one can lie in warm water and take in views of the North Sea and surrounding meadows.
The ground floor, with its living area, kitchen, terrace and further en-suite bedroom, is at once open to the landscape and give 360 degree views, a move which emphasizes the floating appearance of the upper floor.

The Dune House is located on the southern edge of the village of Thorpeness, on the Suffolk coast, a protected area designated as being one of exceptional natural beauty.

Thorpeness was developed as a small seaside resort in the early 20th century, aiming to offer its visitors an escape from the pressures of modern industrial life. It has a picturesque lake or ‘mere’ at its center, where one can rent boats and feed swans, a handful of excellent pubs, tennis courts, a swimming pool, a golf course and a succession of holiday homes built in Jacobean and Tudor styles.
