A Getaway Place On Vega


Wish I had the imagination, drawing and 3D vision skills of an architect. Then I could think of something like this.

From snow-covered Canada let us hop back again to our good old continent, more specifically to Norway.

The Writers House is situated in a fabulous landscape on the island of Vega, halfway between Trondheim and Bodø. It is not far from the Arctic Circle, so the vegetation of the area is unbelievably colourful, with plants characteristic to the tundra. This rock-solid house that resists all the caprice of the unpredictable weather up in the Norwegian Sea, is a project by Kolman Boye Architects and it serves as a vacation retreat and the perfect place to be creative and recharge one’s batteries.

The building melts completely into the surrounding area, due to the usage of sustainable construction materials. Most of the house is built of pine wood and the outside skirting is treated birch, in a fantastic tone that looks like the continuation of the beautiful spotted rocks.

Entering the house you will see a flawless minimalist space with huge windows, the idea being to have an undisturbed view of the romantic landscape and the sea. Lots of wood and plywood everywhere, simple, yet comfy and functional furniture to complement the pared-back scheme.

Lean back and enjoy.
