weekend house

grøgaard/slaattelid

kragerø 2008-11

 

The rock formation of the site is left completely intact. A rectangular concrete terrace is erected, and on top of that 7 differently shaped 

massive wood slabs are placed to create both indoor and covered

outdoor rooms. The 7 slabs are covered with a partially curved roof made of 2"x4". The ceiling is painted in lively colours, a tribute to the traditional houses in the area. All the outer timber are left untreated, turning grey over time. Both the grey colour and the shape makes the

summer house almost invisible from a distance.
