Cottages hold a special place in Norwegian contemporary living, reminiscent of how the majority of people used to live only a few generations back while farming, fishing or lumbering. The building sits amidst marshland, sea-adjacent rock and scattered pine and juniper vegetation. An important task was to avoid interfering with this sensitive surrounding terrain, since it heals slowly due to climatic factors.
