Buildings at the beach-dune interface, such as restaurants and (holiday) houses, affect wind-driven sand transport in their surroundings. Hereby they shape the development of the beach-dune system. This can have implications for the flood protection offered by dunes. Therefore, this research aims to understand the effect of buildings at the beach-dune interface on beach-dune morphology. In this contribution we present the results of a field experiment which focused on the effect of building size and geometry on the size and location of the deposition patterns directly around buildings.
