Perched above a Norwegian river, the Villa Hexagon is a Brutalist beauty. The forest fortress is housed in a six-sided concrete shell with its cement surface is left exposed on the interior. Its monolithic appearance is softened by warm wood cladding and oak floors. A series of angular windows continue the geometric theme, framing in views of the surrounding trees and filtering in natural light. Wrapping around the exterior, an outdoor terrace affords views across an old industrial area, the passing river, and the city of Kristiansand in the distance.
