Todd Saunders of Saunders Architecture has successfully done, what most architects (and designers in general), find difficult to carry through – design a home for himself and his family.
Located in Bergen, Norway, this very contemporary styled 350sq m home is 35m x 6m in size and features two very prominent volumes, one horizontal and one vertical. Here’s Todd’s description- This house is 35m long and 6m wide consisting of two main structures. The lifted element contributes to the illusion that the house is floating in the forest, as well as creating a covered outside space. The first floor contains the main entrance and the storage areas of a bicycle pod, kayak pod and technical pod. A library is situated in the roof of the vertical element, while a large roof terrace can be enjoyed above the horizontal structure.
