The Gunderson House was designed by WRB Architects and is located in Haugesund, Norway. This is one of those cases when the location dictates the architecture of a building. Having a natural fjord as a backdrop, the house had to capture the views and to make the most of them.
It’s why the architects designed it with a glass facade and a linear structure. The house was built on the southern side of the plot, facing the ocean. The courtyard is secluded and the entrance is designed as a concrete box. Other amenities include a roof patio and a heated swimming pool.
The interior is inviting and modern, featuring an open plan living room with a welcoming décor that allows it to serve as the perfect entertainment space. The dining area is part of the same floor plan and it’s positioned close to the full-height windows, overlooking the mesmerizing panorama.
The kitchen opens onto the social spaces, featuring minimalist furniture, built-in appliances and hidden storage spaces. A large island with integrated sink separates it from the rest of the zones. The opposite side of the space is occupies by an interesting-looking modern sofa and a lounge chair in the corner, the perfect meditation or reading spot.
