fancy tuesday! this must be the most dreamy weekend house we could ask for.

designed by swedish studio Kolman Boye Architects, vega cottage is situated on the island of vega in the norwegian archipelago, with panoramic view to norwegian sea and continuous mountains surrounded.

text from the architects:

” Seemingly growing from the landscape, the house sits on a rock beneath a granite shoulder negotiating the uneven terrain. As not to disturb the dominant view towards the sea, access to the house is given through a narrow natural ravine densely grown with gnarled birch shrubs and laid out with sea-sand from the nearby shore. The surrounding landscape remains untouched and wild. ”

“…. Completed in linseed oil painted pine with untreated birch skirting, frames and reveals – the interior is kept subtle with a character of being hand-built – promoting tactile qualities and the attractive patina developed over time. ”

” … The large windows of the house face three directions, each with its strong unique characteristic. They are simple and robust in detailing and the optically white glass conveys undisturbed frames of the ocean, the mountain range and the bedrock. ”
