Gjennomsikten in Porsgrunn, Norway by KOLLABORATORIET

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013


The pavilion, made entirely of timber, has been given the name “Gjennomsikten” (“to see through”) due to its transparent character. The varying dimensions of the materials and the viewers position creates varying degrees of transparency and experience of mass. Standing 5 meters tall with the viewing platform giving an overview of the river: allowing one to see both up towards Skien and down towards Porsgrunn. Inside there is a smaller interior space offering a view of the river drifting past and the public beach across the once polluted Porsgrunn’s-river.

The Boathouse in Haddal

The start of summer 2012 was very different for 21 architecture students from NTNU. Instead of going home on vacation, they travelled to a small village in Sunnmøre. Here they were to realize their first building, a unique boathouse situated between the fjord, the mountains and the sea. The project was organized and designed by six of the students, all in their 2nd year, at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. It all began back in January, when the students travelled to Haddal to get to know the site and the client.

SQUARE HOUSE VEIERLAND in Nøtterøy, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

The house is situated in a pine wood on Veierland, a car-free island outside Nøtterøy in Vestfold. Perched on stilts above a rocky ridge it gently hovers in the woodland, leaving no footprint. This impression is further enhanced by a homogenous surface of dark wood, which gives the house an inconspicuous, almost muted character.

Strømbu Service Centre and Rest Area in Folldal, Norway by Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

Article source: Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk 

The 42kmRondane Tourist Roadgoes on the east side of the Rondane Mountains from Enden in the south to Folldal in the north. The centre is situated near the midpoint of this route, and the place also serves as a main starting point for mountain hikers. The placing together of the two user groups has been important for the layout. For the car tourist: How to be introduced to nature and the mountains during a few minutes stop. And for the hiker: How to leave or come back to civilisation after days in the wilderness. Strømbu is also an information centre for several activities in the district, and the place is basically run and operated by the local parish.
