Kolman Boye Architects created this house on the island of Vega in the Norwegian archipelago not far from the polar circle. Seemingly growing from the landscape, the house sits on a rock beneath a granite shoulder negotiating the uneven terrain.
As not to disturb the dominant view towards the sea, access to the house is given through a narrow natural ravine densely grown with gnarled birch shrubs and laid out with sea-sand from the nearby shore.
The large windows of the house face three directions, the ocean, the mountain range and the bedrock. Organized on two levels adapting to the terrain, the plan is compact, providing generous social spaces within a limited floor area. The upper level is comprised of smaller scale bedrooms and family rooms, whereas the lower level is a large gallery-like space structured around a stone hearth.
"Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone." Steinbeck - Harper’s Bazaar May 1953
