HOLIDAY HOME LIEN
The site is located in a beautifull fjord landscape and design is result of clear amterial use with gliffs washed by sea and behind threes with harmony. Peacefull landscape setting where the summer house becomes part of landscape.
The shapes allows the roof to be part of the concept where the green quit gound connects with the rood and architecture is created within these elements .

telling the story of its part related to our modern times.
Inspired by a family strongly related to minimalistic thoughts and international lifestyle. The building lies in farm landscape whre horses and animals come as contrast.
