Vega Cabin

Set amongst granite outcroppings on an island near the Norwegian Sea, Vega Cabin is a humble getaway that blends in while standing out. The lower level is setup like a large open gallery around a stone hearth, while above, the bedrooms and family areas offer smaller, more intimate settings. Both floors feature linseed oil-painted pine paneling with untreated birch details, large windows facing in three directions, thus offering unique views, and a clean, modern aesthetic.

  • Trollhus House

    Set atop a concrete base to protect it from the more than 60 feet of snow its elevated plot sees each year, the Trollhus House is an elevated take on a ski chalet. Literally. The home's positioning is dictated by nature, with the living spaces facing south for maximum exposure to the sun and the shaded northern side filled with utility areas. Tar-treated wood siding helps the home blend into the landscape, and contrasts well with the warm, light fir of the interior.

  • Kfar Shmaryahu House

    Placed on a hilltop in one of the oldest communities in Israel, the Kfar Shmaryahu House is a boxy, aluminum-clad ode to minimalism. The ground floor consists of the kitchen and an open living area which has large glass walls that offer easy access to the patio. Above, the top floor is separated into a metallic gray square of one bedroom and the natural aluminum casing of the master and two other bedrooms, all joined by a central corridor that encourages interaction between the family members. Otherwise, the interior is stark with natural finishes, allowing the owners' art and furniture to provide necessary splashes of color.
