Architect Visit: Vardehaugen Architects’ Rugged Family Retreat

Cabin Vardehaugen, a polygonal-shaped family retreat on a rugged, rocky hillside at the outermost coast of Fosen in Norway, is Oslo-based Vardehaugen Architects‘¬†first private residential project. The architects strategically sited the house to take advantage of the spectacular seaviews, tucking in three bedrooms, living and dining areas, as well as several outdoor seating areas. We love the geometry of the building and the graphic play of black and white on the cabin exterior to define the spaces.
