Situated on an island in the northern Netherlands, one of the West Frisian Islands, the Dune House is a pyramid roof wooden residence which has an unique connection with the surrounding landscape.
The silhouette of the house associates both to local architecture pitched and turtle roof types of neighbouring houses and the topography of the natural landscape.
This house has a contemporary loft-life open interior space, the different spaces are connected to each other in a continues way by a spiral route, from the most intimate underground private bedroom to the living, dining and relax spaces on the upper levels.
Split-level floors wind along the central core of the building functioning as large steps, the black core is used as technical space, fireplace and bookcase.
Inspiration from architect:
The concept of the house is inspired by the dune landscape of one of the northern Dutch islands in which the house is embedded. The programmatic configuration is derived from the experience of walking through the dunes, it exposes a sequence of view points on the dune landscape: from submerged and intimate viewpoints to elevated and stretched out views over the sea.
