Charming Cottage Surrounded by Movie Landscapes

By • Oct 4, 2018

This charming, 81-square-meter cabin is located in Sandefjord, Norway and was recently designed by the team of architects Sebastian Bjercke, Bergur Briem, and Francisco Kocourek at the head of the Thomas Thorsnes project, all belonging to the firm of architecture R21 arkitekter.

The cabin is designed as a pavilion between the other buildings of Sand Farm. The building has the same footprint as a previous annex building and reinterprets the building to meet modern demands. The system of construction of wooden frames is reinterpreted in the new building, with a layer of glass with shutters that close the original volume.

The wooden load columns are on the outside of the glass wall. The construction is located in a concrete basement and consists of four roof frames supported by columns, reinforced by a rigid core that contains a bathroom and kitchen. In the upper part of the nucleus is a mezzanine. All open during the summertime, the building appears as a simple pavilion, an outdoor kitchen under a large roof. The wooden shutters create a flexible outer layer to close the building in varying degrees to the surroundings.
