Nature has various ways of expressing herself. Its beauty lies in its wildness and incredible force which has modeled shape and created surreal landscapes and sights. Today we are presenting you the simplest of houses lying down between a surreal landscape powerful through its rough terrain slopes and lonely surroundings. Located in the harsh Norway on a solitary island, the small home seems to camouflage wonderfully in the stony land. Its simplicity stands out, rising from the ground and overcoming its difficult site conditions.
“We have aimed to build a contemporary Naust with an unpretentious presence and a distinctive character, developing themes from the vernacular architecture. Seemingly growing from the landscape, the house sits on a rock beneath a granite shoulder negotiating the uneven terrain“, explained the architects.
Simple Scandinavian interior designs have been chosen to go with the overall theme where glass dominates the structure, allowing the incredible landscape in. Neutral tones create a cozy uniform atmosphere where you can relax and let go.
Would you choose to live in such harsh conditions? We believe that for a solitary soul such a landscape and home would be the ideal place. It can also serve as the most incredibly simple vacation home where you could actually disconnect and reestablish that necessary earth connect we all seem to have lost in our concrete cities.
