The most important thing was that the cabin should not stand out in the terrain. But beyond that, the architect got free playroom.

The starting point was that the cabin in Kragerø Archipelago should be discreetly perceived from the sea. That is why architect Erik Collett chose at Kritt Architects to provide the untreated Ospekledning.
The cottage is in a pit in the landscape. The facade to the sea is mainly windows that mirror the pebbles and the scattered pines.
The entire cabin is dressed in gray-gray or untreated standing wooden panels of osp, which caves and disappears in the surroundings.
Out as much as possible
– This is a distinguished summerhouse, where you should be out as much as possible.
– The transition between the inside and inside should be imperceptible, so the cabin has six entrances, but almost no doors inside, tells architect Erik Collett.
Another grip the architect took to ensure the possibility of being out was to divide the cabin into several buildings, like a small village.
That way he has also created more intimate outdoor spaces.
The main building with kitchen room and bathroom is located in front of the pit. It is elongated, has vaulted ceilings and windows along the entire façade.
– The sluggish rooftop vault collects the room in a completely different way than a brine that just disappears.
The curved shape and the large glass surfaces open to the sea view, “says Erik Collett.
You will also get a view from the tower behind the barrel house, because there is a roof terrace. From there, a bridge crosses to the swamp farm and leads onto one of the many trails of the island.
– The owner wanted to use built this way to get direct access to as much of the island as possible, describes Erik Collett.
Bedroom at the top
Inside the tower is the master bedroom. From there, there is a great view. But if you want to come to the rest of the cabin, you must first go out.
– Even if you’re forced out of doors, you have the opportunity to get dry for breakfast if it’s going to rain, it’s plattering all the way, describes Erik Collet.
He tells that the whole point of directing people when moving from one area to another is to save the areas for times and traffic.
At the same time you get to know the best qualities of the area, namely the proximity to nature and the sea, in a much more direct way.
The large windows also help eliminate the distinction between inside and out, by dropping the environment into.
– It’s spectacular to sit inside and look at nature, especially when the sky is multiplied by lightning, says the owner.
The interior is simple and stylish. Everything is painted white, both walls, ceilings and floors.
– I was unsure if it would be cold, but the interior designer thought it would create cleanliness and not be in the way of the view, says the owner.
All the permanent interior is designed by Moolo, who has also chosen the furniture. All he did was bring his cutlery and toothbrush.
The owner is very pleased with the result.
– The cottage has become resilient, and I still discover something new to the one I like, he adds.
The cabin owner is particularly pleased with the overview the cottage provides.
Being able to keep a watchful eye on the children from the terrace while reading the newspaper peace and quiet gives more freedom to both me and them.
Of all the benefits of the cabin, the owner is still most satisfied with the location.
– The immediate proximity to the sea is amazing. This is a cabin to be used! If I do not use it, friends and family will be able to use it. Here, there will be life all summer!
