It is difficult to get closer to the terrain than the architect Stein Halvorsen managed to make his own Hvaler cabin.

Architect Stein Halvorsen, the man behind the remarkable Sami Parliament, has been named as the country’s most profitable architect of architectural competitions.
Here you see what happens when he draws a summer cabin to his own family on one of the Whales Islands.
This is architecture that is both close to the terrain and that has put the creativity of the highlights.
In party with nature
This architect is not a follower of the hut palaces that pride in nature. On the contrary.
In this summer house of 70 square meters has point his been letting the building closest to disappear in the landscape. Here are the views, the elements, the weather and the wind that dominate the design.
Sliding doors, terraces and summer life by the sea
It looks like the way Halvorsen opens the living room with rause glass surfaces and sliding doors straight towards the swab. In addition, multi-level terraces run almost all over the cabin.
And when it’s not blown up in the mountain or built a cottage on top of tall fillings or ditto foundations, it’s very tempting to sit down and enjoy the life and the holiday on the sun-warm, rocky mountain.
Atrium to the sea
In addition, the plant is shaped like a horseshoes with the opening towards the sea, making contact with nature further enhanced.
This shielded party without external view is a favorite place of residence with its solid wooden slabs. This is the obvious place for the morning coffee, and from this social zone you can enjoy the sight of the evening sun going down the horizon.
New for old reason
The background for the cottage project was, by the way, that in 2006 Stein Halvorsen bought this five-storey plot with an old sheltered cabin on.
He immediately saw the potential of the site, and after a professional dialogue with the municipality of Hvaler, was allowed to tear the old cottage building and build a new one with a pronounced contemporary expression.
Within the Hundred Tire
The cabin is 40 meters from the shore and 15 meters above sea level, and since the cabin is located within the so-called hundemetersbelt, it was not allowed to build a larger cabin than seventy square meters here on Hvaler.
This fit Halvorsen excellent. He thinks that this volume is big enough – especially when it comes to a summer cabin and you have a look to exploit the outdoors.
Professional effective land use
By the way, effective space utilization of residential areas is one of Halvorsen’s passions. It does not all know that in addition to being an educated architect, this professional is also building engineer.
A discrete, silver-gray world
The durable exterior hood of the cabin is treated with iron white wine, a reasonable mix that is popular to use not least among architects who want to avoid the buildings they make should not scream too much in the terrain.

An interior with pine and silk concrete
Inside the cabin is dressed with untreated furutre. The concrete floor is smooth and polished, making it almost like silk to go on.
– I would come up with the feeling that this floor is like solar heat swabs to go on, says Halvorsen.
Nature is the main
Otherwise, the cabin is built up of simple, rather similar rooms. This and the discreet use of materials makes the building seem unpretentious – and where contact with nature is allowed to play the lead role.
What’s out – what’s inside?
The cottage includes a living room and facades where two thirds of the glass walls can be pushed from. This handy grip eliminates far the difference with what’s outside – and what’s inside the cabin.
Bedroom with access atrium
Otherwise, it is made of a wing with four bedrooms in a row and row. All have sea views and direct access to the atrium. This outdoor / indoor room is by far the natural gathering place for the family, perfect for experiencing the long, moody summer evenings by the sea.
