It is not often that you come across such a rotten and uranium private residence as this house on Baløy outside Bergen.

The house of 165 square meters was built in 2003. With its refined modern architecture and cobblestone walls, the house proudly boasts a heather-filled mountain hammer, directly opposite the sea gorge.

The house is experienced as a refreshing Western.

Here the intensity of the ocean, the sky and the horizon is stronger than most other places.

Multiple houses that tolerate extreme weather

The closest we come to this harsh Hordaland project is this maintenance-free house in Østfold, this prestigious Frøya resort with sloping hut walls and architectural hut dredged in the ground. Tough is also the family cottage of 11 sqm that lacks absolutely nothing.

Vulnerable Nature

The built-in garage has been designed for the best possible adaptation to the plot, characterized by slight heather crabs and steep mountain climates.

– This is a vulnerable coastal nature that it is important to take care of, says architect MNIL Tor Helge Valen to Bonytt.com

To avoid blasting on the plot, he placed the house in a flat area on the top of the pillow.

Quiz: You should do ten out of ten

A lower section of the bunk is heading south. Here is the big fireplace right behind the dense cobblestone dry walls. They are set up according to all the art rules by local craftsman Atle Rød. The wooden panel that covers parts of the building is tar bread.

Old West Norwegian Embodiments

The long-range house has a long, marked salt form. “Houses with such roof shapes are an ancient, Western-Norwegian house type, as there are several of them on the way from Bergen and get into the ocean gorge,” explains the architect..

These buildings, mainly made of wood, are characterized by dry-walled cobblestone walls, especially in the gable of the so-called drive side, where the weather is strongest.

– often these houses also have a small knee wall on the second floor; a solution that makes good use of the ceiling, “says Valen.

– I brought some of these old building elements into this new house on Baløy, commenting on the architect who has been honored with the Bergen Municipal Culture Prize.

The owners’ super-practical house

The owners, the Bøen family, knew what they wanted from their new house. Most importantly, the villa should be practical in daily use. And with teenage children, they did not need traditional children’s rooms. They also opted for a large guest room on the second floor.

Convenient also with an extra large bathroom on the first floor. It has direct access to the large kitchen and a laundry room with its own exit door. It’s perfect to have when the residents are going to carry fresh fish and crab catch right into the coarse kitchen.

The plan solution is absolutely brilliant

Large roof terrace and view of Holmengrå

Outside areas are carefully adapted to the place, weather and wind. The terrace right outside the dining room has a roof that shields the owners towards the northwest. The breakfast terrace in the east is far more exposed. It is located on the roof of the garage.

– Instead of making a dead roof that no one could use, we maximized the ceiling with a 50 square meter terrace, architect Tor Helge Valen tells Bonytt. no.

In addition, he built a covered balcony in the west facade. From here, the owners can watch the sun go down, ice-capped lightning from the light of Holmengrå, to the west of Hordaland.
