In the forests of Østerdalen, the architects have been playing with nature.

Builder Gunnar Bloch Røsand wanted an eye-catching single house that took the greatest consideration of the beautiful reinlavvegetation and the pine pines on his great natural habitat in Os i Østerdalen.

The young architects in Huus and Heim Architecture took him to the floor, and until they reach you, you’ll get almost the crush of this little (85 sqm) right-wing house – the “cathedral”, as the builder himself calls it.
Terraces to two sides
The tiles on both ends of the building are pulled a bit in and thus it becomes a terrace high raised above the terrain at both ends of the house.
From here there is an overview right in the Østerdalsnaturen, as well as shelter for wind and weather.
Necessity in the Highest
– The building is clean in shape and with scarce detail. The rough material use makes the house go well with traditional wooden houses in the area, says Aslak Hanshuus (1974) architects and Børge Opheim (1978) to click. no
Beta of light
The owner, who is an artist, is captivated by all the lights that the architectural design of his house opens for.
And from time to time, he can wait for the blue sky, the transition between day and night while sitting between the fire from the oven and the dramatic light cut from the tall windows.
– Sometimes I feel like the trees come straight into the living room, he says.
It was exciting to start the dialogue with the young architects, Gunnar Bloch Røsand thinks.
He got a house with completely different qualities than he used to.
– But despite the modern style expression and the big windows, this house is excellent for the old buildings around here in the Østerdalen.
– The exterior is the building dressed with the Malmfuru barn panel. Due to the dry climate it can be left untreated.
High on Architecture
The builder is glad that he dared to let the architects make the house as high and bright.
However, this did not prevent him from moving deep into the woods when the house was finished.
The messoon that floats over the main room is a matter for yourself.
Upstairs the owner looks at the tree tops just outside the house. He calls this point of view for his poetry spirit.
It is because he told the architects that he would like a haven, a private porch to read a word and write a little.
Details that count
He also appreciates the special details that the architects have hatched.
Of his favorites is the visible bondage in the walls.
It also utilizes an ancient construction technique where the walls of the bearings are fitted with studs and wedges – without the use of nails.
The owner has done something on the house himself too. He has designed the kitchen interior, and the sky he has fired on his own.
There are many who comment on the little “big” house in the woods.
It has become common to call it a forest’s cathedral or a jewelery.
But with the many openings and outputs, seven pieces in the number, could it just as well be called a revehi?
