Collective Works - The Cabin

Collective Works

Planning granted in heavily restricted setting

Photographs by

Ragnar Hartvig







This small summer house by the Oslo fjord in Norway is built on the footprint of a now demolished cabin. The main challenge was to stay within the size limits of the previous structure in order to adhere to planning regulations and at the same time meet the client’s functional requirements.
By running the roof ridge parallel to the contours of the shoreline and pushing it asymmetrically towards the rear of the site, the building fits into the landscape and spaces inside are optimised.
The untreated timber cladding was designed and detailed to age naturally over time as the client wanted a maintenance free holiday home.
