The World Architectural Festival has chosen the Dune House by New Zealand’s Fearon Hay Architects as the winner in the Villa category. Nestled in the dunes of a popular beach the home provides shelter and privacy, a raw richness and coastal calm. Despite of lots of stone and marble used in design, the villa is very cozy and inviting thanks to the fabrics used in décor. The house leaves kind of philosophical and airy impression, it looks chic yet simple. The villa is designed to provide both protection and outlook, with spaces opening to a translucent glass screened courtyard and terrace overlooking the beach.
