The brief for this retreat was fairly straightforward: two artists needed a house for contemplation and work on an island off the southern coast of Norway. Since the site is predominated by expanses of rock, Atelier Oslo decided to fit out the home’s interior with concrete to make it feel integrated with the surrounding landscape. A prefabricated wood structure forms the skeleton of the house, while an exterior screen made of Kebony brings an artful element to the facade that casts an intricate web of shadows inside, too.
