Situated on the far end of the headland in Sveio, a 30-minute drive from Haugesund, where the endless sky meets the majestic sea, you can find the Ryvarden lighthouse. It was from this site Floke Vilgerdsson, or Ravnafloke, in the year 868 sailed out as the first man to settle on an unnamed island which he named Iceland. More than a thousand years later, the five cabins, “Flokene”, stand ready in the sea gap in Sveio.Save this picture!Courtesy of Holon ArkitekturSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!Courtesy of Holon ArkitekturThey were designed by Holon Arkitektur for Haugesund Turistforening, a local branch of the Norwegian Trekking Association. One of the major aspects of the project was that the cabins should not leave a permanent trace in the landscape. Four holes for each cabin, drilled in the rock to anchor the steel columns, is the only trace in the landscape.Save this picture!Courtesy of Holon ArkitekturSave this picture!Courtesy of Holon ArkitekturThere was no digging or leveling, and the end result is five spectacular cabins with a panoramic view over the North Sea. Their triangular shape and the flat cut are carefully planned to withstand the harsh climate with its strong winds that sometimes ravage the Western Norwegian coast.Save this picture!Courtesy of Holon ArkitekturSave this picture!Courtesy of Holon ArkitekturFour of the cabins house up to five people. They are all equipped with a kitchen, living room, and a toilet. The largest cabin offers accommodation for up to ten people and is also wheelchair accessible. The heart of each cabin is a fireplace that allows guests to keep warm and cosy inside while watching the waves crashing against the cabin walls outside.Save this picture!Courtesy of Holon ArkitekturProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: International Competition for Conceptual Master Plan & Phase I Arc…Built Projects & MasterplansRadial City Plan: Nine Examples Around the World Seen From AboveArticles Share Architects: Holon Arkitektur Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeHolon ArkitekturOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn InstagramOn FacebookNorwayPublished on November 24, 2020Cite: “Flokehyttene Cabins / Holon Arkitektur” 24 Nov 2020.
