Located along the coast of Norway, Asante Architecture & Design created this custom home to blend into its surroundings. The client, a chef, wanted a home that could be completely at peace with the natural surroundings, while providing a retreat away from the rest of the world.

The facade is weather treated with a Japanese technique of burned wood, which needs little maintenance to keep it from the wind and rain. The roof is covered with sedum grass, making it blend further into the landscape.

From the living room, the owner can watch the moon rise, or fish off the side of the balcony. The bathtub, which is submerged into the rocks of the coast, has a view of the Northern Lights over the ocean.

The front and back of the house have been divided, in order to facilitate more privacy; the side facing the road has smaller windows, while the panoramic windows on the opposite end offer views of overlooking the coastline and the Norwegian Sea. The bedroom is lofted over the kitchen.

The inner décor is in harmony with the outer décor: the spaces are clad with natural wood and just left as they are. I love the colors: natural light and whitewashed woods, beautiful shades of blue and navy, which remind that the cottage is waterfront.

The spaces show amazing views of the coast and nature around, this home seems to be a relaxation oasis
