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.
