Replacing an existing summer house in the vulnerable 100m-belt on a secluded island outside Kragerø, the new cabin provides a robust backdrop for a relaxed summer life. The plan separates the social spaces from the small sleeping rooms with an outdoor/indoor corridor, blurring the boundaries between inside and outside, where life effortlessly can be lived on the adjacent terraces, indoors and in between depending on the weather. Exterior cladding is in ore-pine painted the same distinct colour as the surrounding cabins, and the interior is plywood.

The entire construction process took place on a remote island with all construction materials shipped from the local port.
