Cabin Norderhov in Hønefoss, Norway by Atelier Oslo

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Article source: Atelier Oslo

The project is located in Krokskogen forests, outside the town of Hønefoss. Its location on a steep slope gives a fantastic view over the lake Steinsfjorden.

The site is often exposed to strong winds, so the cabin is organized around several outdoors spaces that provide shelter from the wind and receives the sun at different times of the day.

Casa Hamar in Hedmark county, Norway by Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Article source: Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

The building is a 3-story house containing the basement as a two studio-apartments for hire. There is an excellent view towards south, a situation that has formed the two glazed volumes that are cantilevered and stretching towards the view. The top-floor is retracted a bit in order to give the overall impression of a lower building in the landscape and as well acting as an important creator of the composition. The longitudinal 2-storey-woid in the center of the house is emphasizing the connection between the two main spaces an simultaneously creating a spacious flow between stories.

Micro Cluster Cabins in Vestfold, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

The client wanted a cabin for the whole family, but at the same time it needed to be divisible in some way. The solution was a cluster of three structures, which can be used individually. Each of the buildings is defined as a clarified geometric volume, organized around the outdoor area that binds them together as one unit. Toward the northeast, a hill borders and defines the site, together with the view in the opposite direction. The spatial interaction between landscape and the structure creates a beneficial micro climate. This is reflected by the structures’ southwest orientation, where the gable end is glazed. In the other directions the buildings appear more closed.

The Wave-House will be situated at Ramberg-Stranden in Lofoten, Norway.  At this particular site the coast is formed as a concaved bay covered with white sand.

Hustadvika Tools in Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

Saturday, July 5th, 2014

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

This small but multifunctional building was designed and constructed, both as an answer to the clients need for a wind-and-rain shelter at their outdoor summer house-piazza, and as a combined tool-shed and special-occasion-sleep-under-the-stars-facility. A complex program for a modest building, making way for double-functional elements and architectural ambiguity.

The site at the utmost north-western-coast of Norway, presented it with some harsh and always changing weather conditions including a daily spray of salt water.
