The curved wall was used to create a covered exit to the rooftop terrace where the family living here can enjoy fresh air and views of the surroundings. On the inside the wall also acts as a defining feature helping the architects design a spectacular display of wooden beams and details contrasting with the white walls. The tall graceful curved beams achieve their length by being joined by unusual mirrored dovetails secured with wooden pegs.
The project has been developed on three levels. On ground level there’s a small enclosed area that accommodates a house keeper the laundry room and all other services needed in the house. Then there’s the concrete level where all social activities happen; there’s the living room a dinning room the kitchen and the swimming pool.
All of these add up to create effectively a zero-energy home that is as appealing to environmentalists as it is to interior designers. The interiors are split into well organized living dining and kitchen spaces that form one section while the bedrooms master suite and the bathrooms are housed at a different level. Sophisticated elegant and yet casual in its own refined fashion this is a beach house that is apt for every mood and all occasions.
Concrete is used wherever necessary but it seems like the designers have mostly preferred wood with the one used on the outside being more resistant to the rough weather that can hit the region once in a while. The interiors seem simple and elegant and situated at Østhusvik the Dalene cabin offers 120 square meters of private and tranquil escape from the hustle of city life.
This designed by Tommie Wilhelmsen is housed in one such spot as it offers privacy along with the view of the sea thanks to its secluded location. Located on the the cabin is laced extensively with floor-to-ceiling windows in its top floor to offer those who reside inside the perfect view of the blue waters as they wake up each morning.
