The Outermost House: A Norwegian Island Retreat

Intended way back in 2012 by Kolman Boye architects, Summerhouse Nauste is set in the unspoiled seaside landscape of Vega in the Norwegian archipelago, not significantly from the polar circle. The personal residence features expansive windows dealing with three instructions: ocean, mountains, and the moss-included, rocky terrain. A normal ravine of sea-sand from the shore presents accessibility to the house. 

The property is designed from linseed-oil-handled pine with untreated birch skirting, frames, and reveals. From the exterior, the wood siding mirrors the muted tones of the bordering landscape. The airy, open up-approach interiors are whitewashed, and the home furnishings, chosen by the resident, contains Scandinavian classics from the likes of Børge Mogensen and Bernt Pedersen.
