The clean-cut southern cabin with the mega terrace brings in daylight at both ends.
The villa looks like it floats
Oslo’s most beautiful loft
The world’s coolest narrow house?
Straight from the bath to the bed
The owners, a family with two children, wanted a clean-cut cabin on top of the plot of a wooded hill with a big view of the ocean. They had seen several reports from cabins that architect Cecilie Wille of Morfeus architects in Oslo had drawn and could think of working with her.
In addition to spreading cabins, these architects have drawn bath interiors and furnished loft.
At the top of the family list, it was said that this dream site should be facilitated for full-year use.
In addition, the building would fit into the hose for the family’s daily use while at the same time being able to visit friends and family visits – without experiencing it as if they were living on top of each other.
The rules said brickwork
– The plan of regulation for the area was largely to determine both the design and the location of the cottage on the hilly site, says Wille to Bonytt.com
The local rules prescribed salt roofs, not flat roofs, and thus much of the cabin’s composition was already given.
Salad to new heights
– We could have applied for exemption from these rules that apply to the entire building field, but we were so pleased with the drawings that Wille put on the table that we went for brine, the owners tell bonytt.com
Dense but not cramped
The architects’ concept went out in the rough to create a house with a roof angle of forty degrees and a large terrace right in front of the evening sun. The building of 85.5 square meters has three floors and a number of outputs out in the open.
It has five bedrooms and a cozy loft with a generous view down and above the main floor of the house. The lower floor is 35 square meters.
Locked Lookout Mail
The cabin was pulled back on the plot and with the large living room with kitchen and lounge placed with a view towards the sea.
Here it is possible to experience the changing light at the sea at all times of the day – with a roof over the head.
Out in Nature
From the terrace just outside the dining room you are almost in the middle of nature. Tall pine trees with wide crown screens and wreaths the black-faced building.
In summer, the evening sun sweeps this “ship deck” until almost midnight.
Sørlandet for full jugs
– With this organization of the cabin we can fully enjoy the summer polls on the southern coast, telling residents. – Even on holiday days with rain and froze we find that the plant we have acquired works excellent.
Contact with the coast – in the living room
– When we sit in the living room with the huge glass facade from floor to top of the ceiling, we experience it almost as nature and the basics come right in to us, they deepen.
Glass clear – also on the backside
The cottage also has plenty of glass at the other end of the building, ie against the trolly pine forest.
In addition, the building body offers several places on tall, narrow windows – almost like shooting shots. They are located in strategic places, where the view of the picturesque landscape is the best.
In order to preserve the most of the beautiful natural habitat, Morfeus architects placed the cabin on the least attractive part of the plot. The fact that it is built on three floors means that it produces a so-called little footprint, but a large living space.
Utilized slope on the site
– The building was deliberately carried out in materials and colors that harmonized with the landscape and the cabins otherwise on the building field. To avoid a too rough volume, I utilized the rather significant terrain drop on the site, concludes Cecilie Wille.
