The architects Jarmund / Vigsnæs have designed a summer house in Vestfold, Norway. Do not call it a simple house, not even having a dream home location, directly on the sea, but the design of these architects call it a true work of art. The house is situated in Vestfold, in Norway and to replace an old building previously on the site. To obtain permission to build, the project had to be well adapted to the soil, both in terms of shape, size, material and color. The house and the terraces are partly built on stone walls in the existing site while the new parts of walls were built of stone fragments on the site.
The low, elongated shapes were so designed to allow the wind to reach the inner areas of the house, thus embracing the entire building. Openings and cuts were also made to lessen the impact of the building on the site trying to blend in with the surrounding rock formations. On the outer perimeter of the terraces and the pool is a glass enclosure by failing to protect the building from the wind while at the same time not to interrupt the view. The house is covered, as well as from local stone, wood Kebony, treated with a sustainable process that allows him to have a long durability in the marine environment.
A masterpiece of the Norwegian study, which has succeeded in designing the “perfect house” camouflaged and integrated with the location, the very low impact on a lovely place (and for safeguarding the area that were required for the specific features permit building) and accurate (use of materials) and, thanks to cuts to the interior and gives to those who live in spectacular natural pictures.
