Naust V is a collaboration between Koreo Architects and Kolab Architects. The project is a transformation of an old boathouse in Vikebygd, a small village on the Norwegian west coast. A boathouse, (in Norwegian «naust»), is a common landmark along the Norwegian coast. Traditionally built as a place for storage of boats and fishing equipment, the naust used to be functional buildings with simple materials. Today, as dependence on the sea and fishing industry is declining, many of them are being transformed for leisure purposes. As the Norwegian coastline is considered common property, regulations are very conservative regarding size, use and appearance. Hence, the dichotomy between the regulations and new Norwegian leisure culture forces an old typology to take a new form.Save this picture!© Mattias JosefssonSave this picture!DetailSave this picture!© Mattias JosefssonAt the back of the naust, one step above the ground floor, lies a stone terrace surrounded by a small forest. The new naust is extended backwards to include this terrace into a new winter garden. This part is covered by angled wood cladding, which makes it both opaque and transparent. In the transition a kitchen and a fireplace is introduced as a central gathering space. Sitting alcoves and shelves are integrated in two of the walls, providing a flexible floor area. A big opening in the western wall creates a transition between the interior and stone terrace on the west side. In the eastern wall, a horizontal window offers a glimpse of the village and the surrounding mountains. At daytime the naust is subordinated to the local traditions at distance, whilst unveiling unexpected qualities when given a closer look. The main materials used in the project are locally produced heartwood pine, plywood, and polycarbonate sheets.Save this picture!© Mattias JosefssonProject gallerySee allShow lessKCAP and ORANGE Architects Win St. Petersburg Island CompetitionArchitecture NewsArch From the Syrian Temple of Bel to be Replicated in London and New York CityArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Vikebygd, NorwayLocation to be used only as a reference.
