Welcome to Saltviga House, a stunning shingle house designed by Kolman Boye Architects, nestled on the southeastern coast of Norway in the picturesque town of Grimstad.
This traditional-style home, built in 2022, showcases a harmonious blend of sustainable architecture and natural beauty. Using leftover oak off-cuts from Dinesen floor production, the home embraces a low carbon footprint while offering breathtaking views of the Skagerrak sea.
Discover how Saltviga House expertly adapts to its sloping terrain, creating a unique and cozy living experience.
Tucked away in the remote Lyngen Alps in Norway lies Aurora Lodge – a modern retreat designed by Stinessen Arkitektur in 2021.
With respect for and close connection to nature, the design of this project endeavors to complement the site, with the main building stretching out across the natural plateau and high ceilings and seamless glass walls inviting the sky and landscape into the building. Its outer cladding is made from Nordic Green copper and the inside is clad in silver-fir, with a hard brushed surface, softening the feel of the high ceilings. Along the path to the main house, a separate annex/suite follows the same design approach, and across the creek, the sauna sits as a separate building with its interior all focused on the view towards the sea.
Cabin Kvitfjell is a stunning mountain house designed by Aksetøy Arkitektur located in Fåvang, Norway.
Situated at the foot of the mountain range and just next to Kvitfjell ski resort, this 30 meter-long (98 feet) structure with pitched roof combines dark timber cladding with Norwegian Oppdal slates for an elegant mountain design style.
Inside the house, large windows and sliding doors offer maximum scenic view while wooden interiors with a hint of metal and fabric create a comforting atmosphere. Dedicated rooms for skiing preparation and equipment storage provide direct access to the nearby slopes. The cabin also features terraces, verandas and excellent hiking opportunities all year round.
