How would you love to escape to a mesmerizing holiday home nestled on the rocky coastline of a small island in Norway? It does sound like an exciting proposition filled with amazing views and loads of tranquility! Promising precisely that and a whole lot more is by Lund Hagem which was designed for a young family who wanted to transform their more modest holiday home into something far more exciting and expansive.
Dubbed the mezzanine level of this house hovering above the kitchen and the living area holds two bedrooms and makes the most of the height of the interior. Designed by Architekti Šercel Švec the house was built on a base plate to protect the existing root system of vegetation on the landscape and this helped sustain a lush green garden that is connected with the interior visually. Sliding glass doors offer unabated views of the neighborhood even while extending the living room into the wooden deck and garden outside.
Promising a lifestyle that takes you back into the lap of nature even while delivering modern comfort and aesthetics the designed by ARCHITECTUREFIRM combines two contrasting worlds in a relaxing and ravishing fashion.
The most impressive and distinct feature of this luxurious residence is undoubtedly its front-to-back two-story entrance foyer and stairway. If the sheer grandeur of the entry room along with the playfulness of the pivoting wood door make the entrance more special then it is a series of sliding glass doors that bring in natural light and transform the interior into a cheerful setting. A series of terraces and walkways further strengthens this bond between the interior and the outdoors as the transition from the living room to the outdoor hangout is almost seamless.
White is undoubtedly the color of choice inside the house with shades of gray playing second fiddle. The use of bold color is kept to a minimum with additions such as the green bench at the breakfast zone offering a pleasant change of pace. Refined refreshing and at times quirky this Weston residence is all about light-filled bliss!
We all have had that moment in our lives when we feel that all we need is just ‘one more room’ to truly complete our home. And then we move on to a bigger house and the feeling remains despite all that newfound space!
A series of rocks within a 5-meter radius of the water’s edge made the construction of this structure all the more complicated. Galvanized steel columns were directly drilled into the rocks to give the structure a sturdy base that can withstand the harsh local weather conditions.
