This Beautiful Home Was Designed so that a Chef Could Live Right on the Coast of Norway
The coast of Stokkøya, Norway is home to some truly incredible views, including a selection of small islands and the Norwegian sea itself. It is also home to a very small but very charming home known as Hadar’s House.
Designed by Asante Architecture and Design on the requests of a chef, the small detached home is situated right along the coastline and enjoys some truly wonderful views for the resident.
Upon entering there is a small area of tiled floor and wooden walls where you can store things such as a bicycle, shoes, coats etc.
The main living area is awash with natural light thanks to the towering windows that provide a stunning view of the sea – there is actually a view of the sea from every room! This helps to enhance the vibrancy of the bright teal and white kitchen.
A dining area is directly opposite the kitchen and also features windows that help produce a bright and airy design. There is also a massive pendant light above the dining table that serves as a strong focal point in the open floor plan.
Another towering widow floods the living space with natural light, and a wood fire helps to add warmth to the room and keep everything feeling nice and cosy.
Above the kitchen there is a lofted bedroom that is reached by ladder– it’s easy to miss it on first viewing!
A notable design feature throughout the compact home is the trapezoidal metal sheets present on the roof. These are left fully exposed, helping to add a contrast to the warm design gained from the wooden wall, as well as reflected all the natural light pouring through the windows.
Next to the entranceway is a gorgeous bathroom with a built-in tub that has a spectacular view of the sea.
