Artist retreat

About

Composer and musician Håvard Lund has embarked upon an innovative project to create an artist’s retreat on Northern Norway’s beautiful and dramatic coastline. The retreat is named "Fordypningsrommet", the Norwegian word for ‘room for deeper studies’, as Lund aims at inspiring artists to return to nature and deepen their creative pursuits. TYIN tegnestue together with Rintala Eggertsson Architects designed this project and chose Kebony character for cladding.

The project consists of six small mono-functional houses with a uniquely playful design, including a sauna, sleeping house, kitchen house, studio, the so called “tower for big thoughts”, and a bath-house. Situated in the Arctic Circle, in Fleinvær Archipelago, the buildings have been carefully designed to give stunning views of the distinctive mountains and peaks of the adjacent islands of Lofoten.
