The Dune House Boasts an All-Glass Bottom

The Dune House happens to look like it's floating from different angles. That is because its bottom is made out of clear glass, while the top half is quite dominating and dark in a mountainous sort of way. Yet, the illusion is just that, an illusion.

Designed by Jarmund/Vigsnæs Arkitekter, the Dune House is located in Thorpeness, Suffolk, England. As a holiday house available for rental, it really offers a unique stay for visitors. More than that, it provides an unparalleled view of its natural surroundings thanks to the lower level being solely comprised of windowed walls.

Interestingly, the Dune House had to relate to the existing, traditional British seaside strip of houses in order to obtain planning permission. It does that in a very unique way. Stats for Fake Floating Residences Trending: Older & Chilly
