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 t he word “modest”, when describing anything related to the design of this cozy, nature-embedded, original waterfront home.
