Converted Boathouse Glows Bright & Minimalist On Quiet Norwegian Waterfront


(via) A pair of Oslo-based architecture firms, Koreo and Kolab, worked on this cool project together that we feel would be a great fit in BC. It’s a boathouse that’s been converted into a home on the shore of Vikebygd, a Norwegian fishing village on the country’s west coast. It boasts pine-anchored translucent walls skinned with newfangled polycarbonate so the entire structure glows when hit with natural light. The minimalist interior continues the bare-boned awesome with a straightforward fireplace, plenty of integrated shelving, and fresh concrete flooring. We imagine ours in a sheltered cove on dear old Bowen or one of the quieter Gulf Islands.

SPACED // Tiny ‘Nature Villa’ in the Woods

It lacks a kitchen but we'd happily cook over a fire nearby just so we could sleep in that bed and hang on that deck...

Contemplating Life on a Handmade ‘Floating Island’

The big deck holds a BBQ, a herb garden, a hammock, and several other wonderful things besides (like a baby blue canoe).

We’d Like to Self-Isolate in This Off-Grid Tiny House on the Other Side of the World

To be able to escape the city for the sake of social distancing is a dream worth having in these weird and dangerous times.

We Dig These Cabins Designed For Sustaining Good Times in the Wild

The cool and remote constructions take full advantage of photovoltaic panels, grey/black water treatment and rainwater collection.
