Braving the Elements: Norwegian Home with an Awesome View of Sandefjord
Designing a home that offers stunning views of natural landscape is harder that it often appears. Picture-perfect natural scenery comes with a price the need to brave the elements that are tougher on the structure than in big cities. Designed by Knut Hjeltnes, the Single Family House Hoffstad in Vesterya offers gorgeous views of Sandefjord even while ensuring that it keeps the harsh weather firmly outside. The lot that the house sits on was abandoned for better part of two decades because of the inhospitable conditions. Solution came in the form of a house with a stoic lower level built using concrete and an upper level crafted using wood.
