The Dune House by Min2.
Jetty and Maarten Min, of Bergen office Min2 have completed their own house and studio in North Holland with an arched rooftop, tiled walls and exposed tree-trunk columns. They designed the three-storey Dune House on a coastal dune in Bergen and used unfinished timber, clay tiles and curved profiles to help the building fit in with its rural setting.
“An important design topic was to connect the form and the materialisation of the house with the place where it is situated,” they explained. “The high tall form had to fit in the dune landscape. During the design process this form became one of a dune or of a windswept group of trees sloping along with the worn landscape near the sea.”
