Dune House – unique house built in Suffolk (UK) on a project of experts from the Norwegian architectural studio JVA made of concrete, aluminum, wood and glass.In order to obtain a building permit, the architects had to submit a project that, in spite of modern design and would be loyal to the typical for this area old homes.
The first and second floors of the house contrasted with each other in color, form and content. The first level includes a spacious, well-lit social space living room with fireplace and kitchen. Continuous glazing provides panoramic views of the beautiful surrounding landscape, visually expands the space and combines it with the area around the house, if the glass doors will be partially extended.
The second level, where the bedrooms are located on the contrary, is intended to ensure privacy inhabitants of the house. Asymmetrically arranged windows here play the role of paintings, which successfully fragmented landscapes around, making them a part of modern decor rooms.
That the upper floor is made of solid wood, painted black, supports the historical style of the buildings in the region of Britain. Concept exterior of top of the building is an allusion to the theme of old buildings, typical of the picturesque coast of Suffolk.
