Cabin Hvasser

Location: Tjøme
Size: 120 m2
Status: Completed 2003

The volume of the construction is quiet and has a strict expression that works as a contrast to the soft curves in the open coastal landscape. The building was planned to function like a windscreen around an indoor atrium. The rooms open up towards a screened outdoor area and this in turn communicates with the sea and the view.

The constructive parts have been executed in laminated wood, dressed with cover boarding of untreated pine. The wood will turn grey over time and be more in harmony with the surroundings regarding colour.
