Summer house extension at Høysand

CCH birdseye 2The summer house bridges the landscape on a hillside, overlooking the water and the surrounding archipelago at Høysand in Skjeberg, Østfold. The original summer house has gradually been extended with terraces and a new adjacent annex to form a complex composition.

CCH sectionBy binding the annex and the main house together with a transparent roof, the bedrooms are tied together with the living areas through a sheltered semi-climatized passage. By enlarging the annex with one more bedroom, and removing the bedroom from the main house, the living areas are enlarged, and a more functional overall layout is achieved.
