The Shingle House

The Shingle House is set in a dramatic, almost surreal landscape: It is located on the vast gravel beach of Dungeness, a stoný desert with rare plants and animal species. But in the nature reserve there are also scattered fishermen’s cottages, two lighthouses, the terminus of a miniature railway and a nuclear power plant whose silhouette can be seen in the distance. The building corresponds with this dramatic environment: it takes the shape of the neighbouring fishing huts and like them is covered with tarred black shingles. Inside it is bright white with a wooden floor resembling the purple colour of a wild flower blooming in August. The house is divided into three parts that are designed as single huts: the main house with living area and bedrooms is connected to the kitchen house and bath house via a corridor.
