Cabin Jesper

Location: Jesper, Kragerø
Size: 125 m2
Status: Completed 2005

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.
The interior includes refined details that are in contrast to the tough landscape.
