Studio Viktor Sørless was commissioned to design a coastal summer home currently under construction in Denmark, called the Dune House. The project was made to be a one-off contemporary home on the edge of waterfront. Overlooking unobstructed views across the landscape, the project was designed for a film enthusiast to be a sustainable retreat inspired by Roman Polanski’s movie The Ghostwriter. “Most of the time client briefings ended up with film screenings,“ Viktor Sørless remembers, “In The Ghostwriter actually the building has the leading role setting the mood of the movie. That had an impact on him.“ With regard to sustainability, natural stone was used from the region. A green roof improves the summer heat insulation, while an integrated solar heat system is about to cover the water heating and heating supply.
Lingbao City is a county-level city under the jurisdiction of Sanmenxia City, Henan Province. This was a building renovation project located in a community in the north of Lingbao.

Mid July 2019 recreational park Qurios Zandvoort opened its doors. The park is situated between the Formula 1 track, the national park Kennemerland and the beach of the town of Zandvoort. It’s also conveniently close to the cities of Haarlem and Amsterdam. Because of its unique location the park will attract a very diverse group of guests. From city dwellers to beachgoers and from nature lovers to race fanatics. For the design of the park this meant that it couldn’t be a ‘1 size fits all’ concept and should be able to accommodate this diverse group of guests. The architecture of the park plays a key role in giving meaning and expression to this diversity.
The park accommodates 100 cottages and 2 public pavilions and is designed like a dune park where the sand literally flows against the building. The cottages are situated on plateaus on different heights and all have a different orientation. This creates different atmospheres, sight lines and spatial experiences throughout the compact designed park.
