Weekend Retreat: Norwegian Boathouse

Norwegian Boathouse

Since Norway is considered a leader in weekend cabins, it’s no surprise that architects TYIN tegnestue would be called upon to build a boathouse with as much attention to detail as most houses.

Located in Aure, More og Romsdal, and called Naust paa Aure (Boathouse Aure), the structure is built with wood reclaimed from the original boathouse, which dated to the 1800s. Indeed, some of the paneling is 150 years old. It’s mixed with an exterior of Norwegian pine that’s treated with a sugar cane byproduct to give it a grey hue that settles nicely into the landscape. So, too, does the fact that the boathouse is built around and on top of the site’s boulders, which peek under one of the walls and remind that habitation is temporary compared to the endurance of rock.

  1. Daniel, this is a boathouse and not meant for a sleepover. As you can see, there is a fire pit (hanging in the second image) for warmth, but only the intrepid or summertime users would probably do an overnighter. Thanks for your post.

  2. Its beautiful but I worry it would be cold in the cabin…do they have heat? As always, great post.

  3. Thanks for your comment. I agree. I only wish I had been there and taken them myself.

  4. Beautiful architecture, and nice photos.
