The beaches of the North Frisian island Amrum are among the widest in Europe. The „Dünenhaus“ (dune house) is located near one of these beaches on the south of the island. The architecture of the detached house is modern and straightforward, while the clinker facade fits in well with the North Frisian countryside. Simple elegance paired with function and comfort was the guiding principle in the planning of the house.The bright open rooms are furnished with modern design classics, as well as furniture and paintings designed by the architect and his wife. The predominant colour is white, only the childrens’ rooms are different. These are designed like a colourful painting: in house “eins” in the style of Rietveld, and in house “zwo” in Bauhaus colours.
The houses are each 100 square metres in size. They have a spacious living hall with gallery and three bedrooms (house one) or two bedrooms and a study (house two). Each house offers a wind-protected terrace with a view of the dune landscape.
What to do
The sandy beach of Wittdün with adventure playground and beach promenade is only a few meters from the house. Walks and bike rides to the lighthouse, to the harbor and to the island villages. The ferry dock and the center of Wittdün with shops, cafes and restaurants are nearby. The bus stop is 100 meters from the house. Bicycle rental around the corner, the Badeland (sea water wave pool with sauna area and SPA area) can be reached on foot in a few minutes.

Families. When both houses are booked together, ideal for a holiday with friends.
