Say it with us: ahhh. This serene-looking summer house on stilts (we're sensing a theme here) on a Norwegian island is eminently covetable. Who doesn't want to vacate somewhere peaceful and relatively remote? Designed by Oslo-based architecture office Lund Hagem Arkitekter—whose tiny concrete summer home we profiled last week—this 807-square-foot (75 square meters) pad replaces an older structure on the site. Named Cabin Lille Arøya, the house is a summer escape for an interior architect, an artist, and their two kids, reports Dezeen.
Set on the coast in the small southern Norwegian town of Helgeroa (population: 1,573, combined with neighboring village Nevlunghavn!), the laminated-wood-and-steel house is one long, low volume. Stilts provide the foundation for the summer residence, which can only be accessed via boat. Inside, simple, rustic spaces with wood floors and broad glass windows create the kind of cozy, streamlined interiors we've come to expect from Scandinavian designers.
