Check the transformation at Veierland in Stokke municipality
This fascinating cottage project, designed by the Oslo-based architectural office R21, is located against the Tønsbergfjord, in Stokke municipality, just within Veierland.. no.
Sand, sag and trevare is called the project, which was originally an old shafts factory, until 1992. Now it’s an original country house. The sawmill has been transformed into an open room and is used for play on rainy summer days, corporate premises, workshop etc..
– The intention was to create a house that invites for versatile use in close contact with the surroundings and nature. This type of room is a shortage as it is normal for a room or cabin to fill certain functions. But the builder wanted to recreate activity in a house that previously was a great workplace. This as a connection to the rest of the place, says architect Thomas Thorsnes in R21 Architects for Hytteliv.
After many years when the building was used as a storage room, it was torn and replaced with a new house of identical shape. Here you can invite you to party and fun and boat storage all year round. A total of 90 square meters of festive banquet hall. The house also has a practical and natural ramp under the building for boat storage.
– When the sawmill was in operation, it was very transparent. They had large limbs that were removed in order for the trees to be handled. This is continued in the new building; When in use, the garment is folded away. When not in use, it closes completely, says Thorsnes.
The material uses are concrete pillars against the terrain in frame construction. The roof is made of two works of art that lean against each other.
In order to withstand the forces in the joints, these knots are reinforced with oak. The floor and ceiling are insulated. Folding doors are in cedar.
The architects in R21. no that has more original cabin builds in the portfolio, tries to see the architecture in the context of the social, cultural, economic, geographical and environmental context the buildings are a part of. This project is such an example of that:
The factory was long equipped with wood from the islands in Tønsbergfjorden, which was flowed into “saga”. The project continues the principles; When the building is in use, it appears as an open structure where limbs are removed. Plus, large windows create great views to the water.
