Dezeen's Alyn Griffiths shares a hillside cabin on Norway's west coast with modular rooms that expand out from the main structure to enhance views of the adjacent fjord, a narrow inlet of the sea between the site's surrounding cliffs.
Designed by Rever & Drage, the contemporary cabin was originally a dilapidated holiday home from the 1950s. The architects demolished the former structure to make better use of the stunning vistas from the site.
"The building has a long history as a holiday house, so it was natural to incorporate some of the old building into the new house," architect Tom Auger told Dezeen. "We also chose to use some of the same materials from the annex. By doing that we upgraded the annex to be part of the new building and made it more timeless."
