Lund Hagem Arkitekter as Architects

Knapphullet is a small annex replacing two small sheds on the property. The new building has a distinctive roof free spanning. The roof folds down to the ground creating a ramp up to a viewing platform connecting to the upper cliff.

The project began as an idea for how to utilize a naturally sheltered area surrounded by large rocks and dense vegetation. The idea developed to create a way to climb up from this shelter to see the panoramic view over the sea, which led to the characteristic shape of the roof: a stepped ramp leads up from the terrain to the roof. A sheltederd atrium is formed by the house and the cliffs where the interior concrete bench extends from the interior to the exterior tying it all together.

The annex contains a suspended bed, a small living space and a bathroom. The building occupies a small footprint, but the space expands vertically into three levels: the basement, the ground floor level and the roof. The annex is accessed by a footpath that runs along the small meandering wooded area to the north of the site. The slit on the roof pours light into the building, combined with a hammock.
