A Beautifully Reimagined Boathouse

A Beautifully Reimagined Boathouse

This rustic boathouse is breathtaking. Featuring amazing translucent operable panels, this boathouse was rebuilt from a rundown 1800s structure into a modernized and beautified space.

Located along the Norwegian coast, and designed by architecture firm Tyin Tegnestu, the boathouse has been opened up, using a number of reclaimed materials and modern techniques. The most unique aspect of the design are the operable translucent 'shutters' that completely open up to allow light and air to infiltrate the space. Other features include:

  • Norwegian pine cladding finished with a by-product of the sugar-cane industrial process
  • Salvaged farmhouse windows
  • 150 year old wood panels
  • Light filtering canvas stretched across the skylights
  • A hanging fire pit
