The boathouse

Perched upon the shoreline, its face turned modestly to the water this modern reinterpretation of a previous 19th century Norwegian boathouse no longer provides a home for a boat but instead is now a summer place. Honest, simple, referential, almost reverential and very clever. As the weather warms the boathouse lifts its walls to the sun. Beauty in building, beauty in place, beauty in purpose. The boathouse by TYIN tegnestue Architects.

This is a dream getaway for unplugging and getting away from it all. The transparent panels and walls are such a cool touch!

Really like the hanging fire basket - Looks a little dangerous though with all that timber

Great photo's too
