Choices, Choices…

Living Architecture is a social enterprise dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of world-class modern architecture.  They have asked a series of great architects to design houses for them around Britain and are making these available to rent for holidays all year round. Exciting, yes?  But now you have a choice to make…

The Dune House lies just to the south of the picturesque village of Thorpeness in Suffolk, on an idyllic spot on the very edge of the sea, nestled among rolling dunes. You can walk out from the living room directly onto the beach and enjoy extraordinary panoramic views over the sea from the terraces, bedrooms and bathrooms on the upper floor.  Sleeps nine…The Dune House is the product of creative thinking and work by Norway’s JVA,  Jarmund/Vigsnæs Architects.

The Balancing Barn stands on the edge of a tranquil nature reserve a few miles inland from the Suffolk coast, near the historic towns of Walberswick and Aldeburgh.  Clad in elegant silver tiles, the house dramatically cantilevers over the landscape, providing views from its huge panoramic windows over woods, ponds and meadows. The house was designed by the Dutch firm MVRDV, who have won a world-wide reputation for the ingenuity, playfulness and comfort of their designs.  Sleeps eight people…

…Have you made your decision?  I’m still pondering…

Time Out…

…this is my cup of tea…a modern appeal, one that feels both ancient and contemporary, which yields an air of luxury.  We are visiting the southern coast of Italy…Corte San Pietro Hotel in Italy’s Cave City, Matera…Daniela Amoroso, architect.

The ancient Italian city of Matera, located just off the heel of the Italy, is home to deep caves that have been used domestically for millennia.  The Corte San Pietro Hotel takes shape amongst these caves in the Sassi District, a celebrated UNESCO World Heritage Site in central Matera.  This centuries-old dwelling now welcomes guests from around the world to explore the history of Matera and its complicated topography. – thecoolist
