Dune House collection

Dune House collection 1

Offering a kind of living engaged to nature and based on sustainable solutions, the dune house of Maarten and Jetty Min served as a starting point and as an inspiration to the Dune House collection. The dune house in Bergen aan Zee is based on the principal of the minimum environmental impact

The Dune House Collection is a series of several dwellings and interior objects with the same starting points as the Dune House. The craft materials and the visible construction give form to a kind of living engaged to nature. Rich in expression, but not in price, the beauty of this more basic new luxury promotes the experience of living over the accumulation of expensive things. A very important part of our concept is to consider ecological values and make minimal environmental impact. For this reason we devote considerable resources to finding sustainable construction and energy solutions.

We offer two types of every house: one with an ephemera atmosphere and other with a more permanent character. The main differences relay on the size and the construction materials. So pick if you want to live comfortable or if you just want to enjoy some playful moments with your family.


Dune House

Dune House 1

The house of Jetty and Maarten Min is build on a dune top at 300 meters from the North sea. The rough romantic situation is starting point for the appearance, shaped by the west wind and for the low maintenance and basic materials. The atmosphere of the interior of the dune house is dictated by the surrounding nature. The visual construction of fir trees is an abstraction of the living trees curved by the wind. The basic exterior materials also occur in the inside space.

The Dune House has won prices, is nominated and is published in many architectural magazines and glossy’s in The Netherlands, for more information: http://www.min2.nl/publiciteit.html.

Pillar House

The pillar house offers you the opportunity of raising above the water, finding a safe solution for the historical Dutch fight against the sea. This house was designed for the Dutch areas below sea level, which are close or on the edge of the water.

So, we offer three versions of pillar house: one suited for a stable family house, a smaller house, perfect for relaxing during the vacation, and a beach house to enjoy the Dutch seaside. The family house it’s organized into two floors, that are opened to the big double height ceiling, living area. The relaxing version follows the same body as the last one and it’s more appropriate for a couple to live or just spend a romantic holiday. The beach house propose a new approach on the small cabins display on the beach. They can be removed during the winter time and loved during the summer. Use it as family house close to the water. You can image living in another level, where the floor is elevated to offer you a better view to the surrounding environment. The common area is maximized, designed along the linear private area. With the open common area, the private part is like secret in a back wall, hidden by doors and cabinets.
