Dune house by Norwegian Architects Jarmund/Vigsnæs is Located in Thorpeness, England on the Suffolk coast has an open-plan ground floor that is entirely surrounded by clear glass.To get the effect, the ground floor is primarily composed of glass while the top consists of an imposing, thick black roof. Grass-covered dunes surrounding the house protect the ground floor rooms and terraces from strong sea winds.
Its form derives both from a wish to echo local traditions while providing something ‘refreshingly new’, and from memories of childhood holidays in England, spent in the attic bedrooms of gable-roofed B&Bs.
The upper storey is divided into four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, over which the orange steel-clad roof is folded in peaks, and a library space providing access to the roof terrace. Bathtubs are placed in bedrooms rather than bathrooms to take advantage of the views out.
