The house is beautifully situated on the top of a hill overlooking the ocean and the horizon, placed in the midst of an uncultivated landscape on a small peninsula. The design of the house allows a close interaction with the surrounding nature and the beautiful scenery. It provides a feeling of being outdoor when inside. The small scale of the house together with the use of wooden materials that will gradually develop a grey patina allows the project to interact and fit in with the existing shape and natural colours of the surrounding landscape. At the same time the design contrast with the traditional building practise of the area.

Design team:

Reiulf D Ramstad, Anders Tjønneland (both Architects MNAL)
