Hotter saunas should look long after

After Sissel and Alf Magne Berge went to view on the cottage field at Fitjar, they were summoned by the western landscape and the cliffs.

– The place, the aesthetics, the modern language of the language with a holiday home built on old travel works, as well as the quality of the project, decided to us, Sissel and Alf Magne.

Built in the terrain

It was the terrain that decided how the cabin was designed. It is on two levels, with kitchen, bathroom and bedroom on the upper plateau.

A wide, long staircase leads to a spacious living room downstairs. It is 5.5 meters under the ceiling at the highest.

– The terrace in front of the cabin consists of both wood and tiles, as in the living room inside. Three inside goes into three outside, the same goes with stone. That way we get an emotion inside and vice versa.

Nature’s color scale

The walls on the lower level consist mainly of glass surfaces. In the evening, the house looks like a Soria Moria castle from the sea, light and inviting. The outer garment is Siberian larch that is grinned over time, so that the housing slides into nature’s own color scale.

Interiors are residents inspired by the Nordic light.

– In the living room we have combined new with used furniture. Several things, including the kitchen table, are from Ikea, while the kitchen chairs are Norwegian iron chairs. We have emphasized light furniture and thoughtful lighting, “says Sissel.

Summer as winter

The married couple is at the resort year round and the fireplace is central to the living room. Alf Magne has designed the fireplace with a room separate for wood, and with Danish insert fireplace. Where there are tiles inside, there are also heating cables. The rest of the holiday home has floors in a lacquered pine.

– We have brought us all the seasons here and it is absolutely amazing to be here in Christmas with snow around us. Here we enjoy the view of the island kingdom. The cabin is built so we have sunshine on the outdoor areas throughout the day. We have never seen so much of nature as after we moved in three years ago. Here we relax and look great in the little one.

Naustene and the harbor are adjacent to the holiday homes. All nail walls are treated with iron white wool.

Since we have used different woods for cladding, there are a lot of variation in the gray colors of the nests, just like on the mountains in the back, says Johs. Sandvik, who is head of Blikk cabin project.


Three fresh colors have been selected on the stall doors: peat blue, oker and rusty. These are colors that have been used on exterior doors in the area here from a long time back.

– We have not used any system or logic for the choice of color on the individual door, and all the buildings are different with variation in roofing. We want this to help the nausea region give a touch of the old naust environment feeling, “says Sandvik.

In use throughout the year

The owners use the houses for storage of boats and fishing gear. The Berge family often uses the nest place below the cabins.

– We use it both on sunny days and in rain. On a rainy day we pull in and enjoy the weather from there with coffee and freshly made waffles. If necessary, we put on the heat there, such as for Christmas Christmas on the bridge with friends and cabins, says Sissel and Alf Magne Berge.
