In the mountains of Norway

Hendrik Hille

This cottage, owned by architect Henrik Hille, is located in the mountains in the middle of Norway, in a place called Lykkja, next to Hemsedal.

The most important for the builder was that the cottage harmonies with the nature around. The cottage is panelled with wood and the roof covered with grass. The glass walls gives a great view¬†to nature. You can sit in the sofa and watch wildlife a few meters away almost opposite of the zoo! The owner wanted cottage life to be different from urban lifestyle. The cottage is 110 m2. It have bed space for fourteen people and is designed to accommodate different generations, allowing space for privacy. The heated floor is made of sanded cement and the interior simplified so that it doesn’t interfere with the experience of nature.
