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.
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.
The spectacular green lawn that is spread across the courtyard of the residence is a wonderful visual treat both from the interior and exterior and helps the house blend in with the natural setting of the region beyond its own borders. A vast foyer welcomes you with glee while the wooden paneling on the outside not only heightens the beauty of the structure but also acts as an energy-saving feature and regulates the temperature inside.
The living and dining space is the heart of the design and includes all possible objects that are so curious looking and catchy while the home study and work space has been ergonomically placed underneath the stairs to save up on some space. Paper and ceramic cartons are used lavishly in a creative fashion and are wonderful conversation starters as you step into this lovely Norwegian home.
One of the most striking and definitely bright feature of the home as you step right in is the beautiful fire orb that is housed in the living room and rotates like some space-age accessory to ensure that it spreads warmth equally all across the room.
