Architecture studio Snøhetta, together with entrepreneur Tom Bjarte Norland and Danish brand Vipp, has opened a new resort near the Lysefjord on the west coast of Norway. The Bolder project includes four cottages, which, according to the authors’ plan, should completely erase the boundaries between external and internal space.
The project, launched in 2020, appeared thanks to the team’s desire to offer visitors an authentic experience in which nature plays a major role. Four cottages Stylten, Myra, Stjerna, and Eldhuset are located on the edge of the Lysefjord and gracefully inscribed in the landscape so that nothing disturbs the harmony of the surrounding landscape. The houses are installed on concrete supports and have glass facades so that guests can admire the natural surroundings from any part of the space.
