Built into the steeply sloping shoreline of Lake Steinsfjorden, the stone bungalow has large glazed walls that face towards the water and a cross-shaped plan that acts as a wind-break for outdoor patios.

Inside, pale wooden walls take a gently curved form that contrasts with the linear geometry of the exterior, so as to create a cozy atmosphere. The rounded birch formwork meets a terraced floor that follows the inclination of the site.
The circular hearth of the wood-burning stove is incased in glass and a patch of lighter-toned hexagonal marble encircles the fireplace, both intended to create the impression of a campfire.

The architects chose slim metal window frames for the windows. "The frames of the glass are detailed carefully to avoid seeing them from the inside. This creates a more direct relationship with the nature outside," they said.

Cushions are arranged on a step facing floor-to-ceiling glazing, offering a vantage point for residents to take in views of the woodland and the lake beyond.
Single light bulbs mounted on the wooden walls and below the kitchen cabinets softly light the space.

The exterior walls and pitched roof are clad in strips of basalt, referencing the traditional clapboard houses of the region.

    There is a narrow window a the left. Through its leaded panes the morning sunlight streams> A candle still burns near the bed, which is at the right. A chest, a chair, and a small table are the other furnishings. At the back a cdoor opens on the landing of the stairway to the ground floor. The room gives off an air of clean sparseness. The roof rafters are exposed, and the wood colors are raw and unmellowed.…

    It had beautiful, old ironwork surrounding the verandah, and dark green paint on the doors (Campbell). We toured the house jumping at every random sound because we were afraid of ghosts. The décor of the home was exquisitely decorated in the time period of the house (Campbell). When we finished our self-guided tour we walked out to stand on the verandah and admire the view. It was dark outside and nobody was in the home so we decided to spend the night here. We found two beds and quickly fell asleep.…

    No mortar was used, making them the world’s greatest dry stone walls. At first sight the walls look as if the stones were placed haphazardly, but in fact they followed a very careful geometric arrangement whereby the stones settled into a compact solidness through their own weights (p.24). The small walls of plaster and ground rock on top of the bases would be pierced with openings - triangular for guns, rectangle for arrows. These walls added greatly to the aesthetic of the castle.…

    Paul Goldberger stated, “Interior space will almost always provoke a greater emotional response than the building’s façade.” An individual would better understand the concept of the architectural design by experiencing, feeling, and seeing the space from within. Through this, space creates an emotional aspect within a person. Since different people experience the space, no two people perceive a certain space the same way. A person’s perception varies based on the impact and impression given by the space. Each and every individual who enters the space would have their own opinion on the emotional element their surroundings stipulate. Space can make you feel small, big, restricted, confortable, welcome, isolated, warm, cold, and so on. Although everyone experiences spatial impressions, not everyone is consciously grasped by it. It creates various emotions that only you can interpret. Royal Ontario museum’s space can be interpreted in several ways. Some people feel awkward and restricted with the space the irregular form creates. They find the crystal structure a way to waste of space. However, some people find its unusual space quite interesting. The massing of the structure allows the natural light to come in making the space look larger than it is. Adding to that, the light that comes from the window creates an “ascending” feeling; at the same time provides an overlooking view of the street. Frank Ching’s Architecture, Form, Space & Order thoroughly explained how placing windows in the corners established to capture a desirable view or brighten a darker corner of the…
