Weekend house overlooking the sea, situated in the south of Norway.

The site overlooks the sea to the north, a quiet forest to the west and the approach is from the south. Neighbouring properties are found to the east and south-east. These somewhat contradictory conditions required a highly considered approach in order to meet the client brief and environmental factors.
The client grew a fascination for the courtyard typology while living in Oxford, and this project is a regional interpretation of the theme on the scale of a small house. The inherent flexibility of the courtyard typology enabled it to meet all the demands from both client and site.

The kitchen, living room and library is set at a lower level following the slope of the existing terrain.
