The Summer house is located on the coast of Vestfold in the southern part of Norway. The house replaces an older building at the site. To get the planning permit, the project had to be well adjusted to the terrain, both in terms of shape, scale, material and color. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleThe house and terraces are partly built upon existing stone walls, the parts of the walls which are new are made of stones from the blasting at the site. Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleThe low elongated volume is cut into to allow for wind shielded outdoor areas, embraced by the house itself. These cuts also bring down the scale of the building, and together with the local variations of the section, make the building relate to the surrounding cliff formations.

The house is clad with Kebony wood, a sustainable process of treating the wood to allow for good durability towards the exposure to salt water.Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleProject gallerySee allShow lessIn Progress: 1111 Lincoln Road / Herzog & de MeuronArticlesVadabus Square and St. Paul Church / Ginseng ChickenArticles Share Architects: JVA Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeJVAOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesNorwayPublished on November 10, 2009Cite: “Summer House Vestfold 2 / JVA” 10 Nov 2009.
