The heavenly cabin opens totally towards the sea and extends to the light.

The view from architect Torstein Ramberg’s own, remarkable building at Hurum is available from many rooms.
The raw architecture has its own distinctive character.
Here you can even from the cottage kitchen located in the middle of the house looking far beyond the sea in the direction of Skagerak.
This is by no means the first significant project Ramberg has signed. He has also designed Oslo Tinghus and Villa Korsnes. It was 2002 honored with the Oslo City Architecture Award.
The concrete steps are like a sculpture
It’s not just the view from the plot of the long-sloping hillside that’s huge.
The line-locked cabin also has a lot to offer.
You enter the house via the entrance, which is placed in the middle of the lower floor, along with a number of stalls and technical rooms. From here you can see right on the spectacular concrete staircase.
The staircase has a prismatic glass roof on the top and is so special in the shape and materials that it is perceived as a piece of furniture on both floors.
Our cabin paradise
Upstairs on the main floor with a terrace facing the ocean, you understand why the owners call this for their summer paradise.
Here in the height you experience the sea and the sky in an intense way.
A lightweight copper roof
The specially designed “floating” ceiling covered with copper plates is a chapter for themselves.
– It was the free float of the canoe and their elegant wing buckle that inspired me to give the building this roof with an unusual snail shape, the builder tells Bonytt.com
He thinks this particular architectural grip contributed significantly to the cab’s intimacy and balance in the interior.
Fireplace both inside and out
The main living room with living room and kitchen has several zones that can take your breath away.
The salon facing the sun and the sea is an obvious sight in the room, but the fireplace placed in the glass on the long wall to the woods in the northwest is perhaps equally sensational.
This is a double pepper, ie it has a fire compartment on both sides, ie on both the inside and outside of the cabin wall.
Steel columns – inside the room
The interior fireplace, which is also perceived as an image, is flanked by chalk white, bearing steel columns.
They pulled in a good way into the room from the outside wall. This also contributes to giving a distinct visual effect in the interior.
Doors Against Eternity
The third eye catcher are the giant glass doors that open the entire front of the cabin right onto the view.
On the terrace, shaped like the bow of a boat, the owners can enjoy both morning sun and sunset.
Here they can always see the shining sea when sitting at the long table.
The ceiling with discreetly embedded speakers is made up of 21 mm thick solid wood birch veneer slats. To give this bright roof the necessary stability, the games are glued to the ceiling.
Lime on the floor
The floor, both inside the living room and on the terrace, is covered with large limestone tiles. It runs as a continuous flat without thresholds from the bathroom in the inner part of the cabin all the way to the tip of the pointed terrace.
How to create flow and harmony between rooms.
A modernist altarpiece
The kitchen is made of light maple and is located at the back of the living room. But this does not mean that it is easy to overlook. It has a dark metal shiny tile backing wall.
The wall has a visual expression, expression and shape that reminds of an altarpiece.
With all the daylight flooding from the many and large windows, it is equally bright inside this cabin as it is outdoors.
Easy to read, all over
– Here you can easily read a book and read it without using lamps. This applies throughout the summer, says the owners.
The life-giving light turns into warmth: Through the bright season, the sun warms up the massive stone floor structure, keeping a little lunk in the cabin throughout the holiday season.
The cabin is no longer from its main point than it can be used on weekends in addition to vacations, Ramberg expands.. He also appreciates the fact that it is a short way to boat, pier and beach.
Geometric and Transparent
– By the way, the geometry and transparency of the building make it so special. The shape of the cabin was the foundation itself when I saw the plot, explains the architect.
Torstein Ramberg used to use only materials that can withstand and burn with grace. This meant white concrete, white granite, copper, plywood, jurastein, wire mesh and glass mosaic tiles.
Two round concrete sections, stairwells and logs are located outside the building body. This means that there was a visual calm and cleanliness in the cabin.
The lodge follows the lines in the terrain and is partially buried in the long-term annual ridge.
