The cabin is open to all sides.
The architect’s own cabin in the inner Oslofjord is liberating open, simple and down to earth.
This is so-called timeless, modern architecture that appeals to all generations, and not least to children and youth who will be active all day long outdoors.
This modern-day project is in close family with architecture like the super-compact ski hut, the Finnish architectural hut with bonfire space in the middle of the mega terrace and the cool mini craft huts that have come lately.
A ramsalt trip to holiday island
The boat trip out to the cabin on the island is a separate, ram salt experience. Here you have a magnificent view over the hills in Asker, Nesodden and the capital in the distance.
The building floats above the ground
– We thought summer life all the way when we designed this resort, “says the architects Trine Faye-Lund and Jostein Bjørndal to Hytteliv. no.
– Grab as the low lying lines and an additional easy foundation of the building that cause the cabin to almost float above the ground was important to us, tells the architect.
Otherwise, the holiday resort is discreetly located on an open area on the plot, in the middle of a small hill, where the island is as narrowest. The owners also kept the vegetation belt between the cottage and the sea and they did not cut a single tree on the plot.
The areas around the house occasionally grow grassy so the outdoor areas in front of the cabin became ideal for ball games and other summer activities.
Because the cabin is quite open on a hill, it’s another challenge to shield it from the occasional fresh sunbreak from the south and the little cool dragon that goes in from the north when the fall is on its way.
– Being able to sit in the big sturdy room at the very end of the long-haired building body and look in the landscape on both sides is incredible. These glides, the sight lines to the sea, woods and hills were otherwise obtained after we carefully cleaned the bushes between the trees around the house, telling the owners to Hytteliv.com
Thought from A to Z
The cabin is distinctly rational. To get a good ceiling height and airiness inside, the roof has very little fall.
The covered outdoor area with outdoor kitchen and a 20 meter long swimming pool forms a separate part of the cabin, almost completely free.
The kitchen is a discovery. It is made as a separate room and is completely open to one side and with glass wall to the other.
To prevent drag, light plates are placed throughout the house. The slender steel pipe and concrete foundation helps both this part and the rest of the building appear to float above the ground.
– The distance down to the mountain range varied from 10 to 80 cm, says architect Jostein Bjørndal. We poured out soil, put down pipes and castings. Consumption was half a sack of cement and a little sand, as well as some galvanized, three-inch tubes of different lengths, the expert states.
The special toy exterior is laid horizontally and helps the cabin facade and the entire building get a personal, airy style expression.
The owners pulled the building well into the ground so the beach zone just below was as open and open as possible.
Multiple independent devices
Oslofjord cabin of 60 square meters contains a fully open living / living room, the twenty-meter long whirlpool, the outdoor kitchen, various stalls and three bedrooms.
