Towards The Scallop To The Meare Thorpeness Beach Thorpeness Beach You can look back towards Aldeburgh or to the right you can see the latest wonder of Thorpeness: Living Architecture’s Dune House.  This building is probably almost as controversial as The Scallop!


The “pointy” house with the shiny metallic roof was finished in 2011.  This latest edition to the eclectic architecture that makes up the Thorpeness dunes was designed by Norwegian architects Jarmund/Vigsnæs.  Strangely the baths are in the bedrooms. Is this some form of cultural alignment to the 20th century British predilection for carpet in bathrooms?

Take a closer look at the Dune House.
