Cozy, Nature-Embedded Home in Norway: Buholmen Cabin
Located on the Buholmen Peninsula in Norway, this waterfront cabin designed by Oslo-based architecture firm Skaara Arkitekter AS boasts 1,076 square feet of inviting living space. Its exterior is defined by a pine facade and a moss roof, capturing the natural colors of its environment. According to the architects, “the cottage replaces an old cabin and is supplemented with a new outhouse and jetty. The buildings’ two volumes separate living from sleeping areas, and create a protected patio which gives shelter from different wind conditions. A fan-shaped plan opens the cluster towards the south. The southernmost wing contains the private zone with modest sleeping cabins. The east wing consists of a split-level open living/kitchen area with views across the inlet towards Jomfruland“. We don’t know about you guys, but we would leave out the word “modest”, when describing anything related to the design of this cozy, nature-embedded, original waterfront home.
