Studio Vural’s ‘Dune House’ Is A Self-Sustaining Beach Abode In Cape Cod

The future of self-sustainable homes has been a topic of conversation within many architectural circles for some time now. Whether promoting the ideas of conscious material construction, a more adept approach toward power production, and consumption, or something as simple as a visually-astounding living space fit for the future, the world of “structures” has begun to evolve. The Dune House — an innovative, hyper-sustainable home shrouded in the sands of a Cape Cod beach — is one such dwelling.

Inspired by one of the animal kingdom’s most electric creatures, the squid, Studio Vural’s Dune House looks to maintain its composure in much of the same fashion. After studying the species’ recognizable “flash,” which emits light for communication purposes, Vural set out to create a home that was entirely self-powered. The result? A split structure that boasts a silhouette blanketed in the sand, covering over 80% of its spacious envelope in grain-like insulation. This way, the home’s internal temperatures can be regulated through the geothermal temperatures of the surrounding land, working alongside a collection of solar panels and miniature wind turbines to produce entirely clean energy. Inside, large, length-running windows provide views of the home’s central socialization and traversal area, allowing denizens to appreciate its modern trappings, carbon absorptive building materials, and peaceful pleasantries.
