Inviting Holiday Home by the Beach: The Shingle House in England

Alain de Botton’s Living Architecture project has recently been seriously taken further with the second finalized holiday retreat. The Shingle House comes from  NORD Architecture and is located on a beautiful beach in Dungeness, Kent, England. Its exterior is covered in black shingles which alternate pleasantly with wide windows. Together with a few transparent doors, they manage to open up the house to the beach and let in spectacular views. The Shingle House has a charming and unique interior design which combines traditional elements with modern utilities. The timber additions make for a warm and relaxing atmosphere while tasteful colorful details bring a happy tone.  All-equipped, this holiday home can accommodate up to 8 people and is perfect for a large family, whose members will not have to worry about leaving something behind. -via Dezeen
