Cottage Haellestrand, Norway waterfront house

This Norwegian residential project is a result of a private architect competition, where the owner wanted proposals that took care of an optimal terrain adaptation. The waterfront plot was part of a protected landscape.

The task was to design a summer cottage partly customized to the natural area, the magnificent rocks and the birch trees.

The cottage replaces an old fisherman’s hut, which was situated on the backside of the large rocks.

Lawns and retaining walls are residuals from the former garden. The building is stepped up from the entrance level and leads up to the level of the viewpoint terrace that fronts straight out through Dynekilen, with a large residence zone against the garden.

The volumes are consciously split into smaller units and levels the adaptation to the landscape.

On the façade there is used untreated aspen with parts of local natural stone that strengthens the bond to the context.
