The fortified cabin creeps down towards the terrain, and it will withstand the strongest stormbox.
Tough cabin than this Frøya cabin that creeps close to the northwest and the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll look long after.
The closest we come may be this extreme cabin. This is modern architecture that adorns the surrounding with stone walls, and it is also partly dug into the ground.
The Frøya cabin can withstand most of the weather
– I designed the sloping walls and the whole plant for the holiday home to stand against the harsh weather here in the ocean gorge at Frøya. One of the largest islands on the Trøndelag coast, says architect professor Ermitus Bengt Espen Knutsen to Bonytt.com
The Porter Cabin project is in the same street
And this with protection against wind and weather is a theme like B. E. Knutsen has worked with earlier as well. Among other things, in his own cabin at Portør. It lies like a discrete cluster of small wooden houses, almost like a small village all the way out on the pebbles. This sensational private project is presented in Living Architecture.
Bengt Espen Knutsen can do this with family groups
In this and other projects such as the unconventional brick house high in Holmenkollen, we see why this architect has become known to put together independent volumes into an aesthetically homogeneous and functional whole.
A house with sloping walls and an inner courtyard
The cottage on Frøya designed by Bengt Espen Knutsen in 1999 for a weathered plot with a beautiful view of the Norwegian Sea.
The house is built as a castle around an inner courtyard protected from the wind, explains Einar Dahle Professor of Architecture at AHO in the Pax book Bengt Espen Knutsen.
The outer walls slope backwards at the top and give the house its bourgeois expression; a protection against wind and weather. In view of the harsh climate of Frøya, however, there is a mindset that the cottage has large terraces outside the common rooms, writes the expert. But this is the sunny side and there may be some quiet weather on Frøya sometimes?
The house composition is successful and the concept strongly concludes Einar Dahle.
The cottage on Frøya has functionalistic examples
This Frøya project and other works by Bengt Espen Knutsen are in line with international architecture impulses that came true from the 1960s, “says architect Ulf Grønvold, editor of the box series Norwegian Architects to Bonytt. no
Stands out in Holmenkollen
A sturdy and honest cottage
– This is about robustness, so-called honest materials and a reflection of the primacy of the primitive popular architecture.
– It is this valuable tradition Bengt Espen Knutsen has taken on to today. This is a longing for the simple and untrue combined with functionalism’s sensible plan solutions and geometric cleared volumes, the editor finishes to Bonytt. no
