THE THIRD EDITION Built by the Sea: Villas and Small Houses is now available. The book is a showcase of private residences and summer houses in which the interplay between the built and the unbuilt natural landscape achieves it maximum effect.
Norway’s Lund Hagem Arkitekter is celebrated for their unique relationship with nature. Established in 1990, the firm has staked their reputation on their unique sensitivity to the interaction between form, material and the existing surroundings. Impressions from the landscape and local buildings create a vocabulary they use as their basis for creating modern architecture rooted in the Nordic tradition.
For each building, the landscape is deftly analysed, determining which parts of the site should remain untouched, and which microclimates would best lend themselves to domestic living. This book will capture the attention of both students and professionals alike, especially those who are interested in Nordic architectural solutions for domestic living in harmony with nature.
