Cabin Ameln

Location: Østerøya, Sandefjord
Size: 90 m2
Status: Completed 2009

The building sits in sloping terrain in close proximity to the sea. It has been designed to create favourable, screened outdoor areas. Previous buildings (4 in total) have been demolished and replaced with one new build that collects all functions under one roof.

The L-shaped layout uses steps to follow the terrain so that the building can utilise existing vegetation and trees to avoid visibility from the sea. This layout creates one upper and one lower outdoor area/patio. The upper patio has been duly screened from the seafront, but offers views through the building due to glass walls.


In addition to glass, the building consists of untreated larch and concrete.
