It’s finally spring, and so many people are already searching toward summer time holidays, just a little sun and even perhaps a while by the pool.
Well, if you are planning for a trip over the pond, I’m able to recommend a 1-of-a-kind beach house around the British seaside this is a awesome contemporary option to any standard B&B or local accommodation.
In the Dune House, which ‘floats’ around the sand dunes on the beach near Thorpeness on England’s new england, you’ll awaken in angular, light-filled space created by a global-class architect.
The Dune House is among five houses commissioned for any project known as “Living Architecture,” an organization within the U.K. that provides twenty-first century holidays in modern works of architecture.
Created by a number of Europe’s leading architects, the structures are deliberately experimental and usually are meant to enhance people’s appreciation of contemporary architecture, and will be offering a singular vacation experience. They may be rented for any weekend or perhaps a couple of days.
I’ve visited a couple of these funky holiday spots, The Dune House and also the Balancing Barn, a gleaming 100-feet lengthy aluminum-clad building that cantilevers within the fringe of a hillside in Suffolk (that we authored about inside a previous blog publish).
The Dune House, a sensational reinterpretation of the beach dwelling, is really a conversation piece around the shore where it sticks out among a lot more traditional seaside homes. Created by Norwegian firm Jarmund/Vigsnaes Architects, its striking asymmetrical roof, clad in tinted orange steel alloy, reflects the altering hue of the ocean and sky. The breathtaking views on the floor floor offer spectacular views from the North Ocean, and you may go out right out the family room to the beach.
Upstairs, each loft-like bed room includes a bathtub inside it, with home windows carefully positioned so that you can bathe while consuming the views from the ocean and surrounding meadows. You will find a little library and roof terrace. British charm meets Norwegian imagination.
So if you’re within the U.K. searching for any unique seaside holiday, the Dune Home is open for bookings and may accommodate as much as nine people.
Additionally towards the Dune House and also the Balancing Barn, in Suffolk, another Living Architecture holiday home, known as the Shingle House, is able to rent on Dungeness beach in Kent. The Shingle House is a straightforward, black house carried out in traditional tarred shingles on the outside of having a light, very modern timber interior. Made to reflect the geography and old fishing communities of Dungeness, it’s located on a serene, somewhat isolated area of the southeast coast.
