Cabin Inside-Out, Norway - Norwegian Summerhouse


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.
