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
