If you can't get people to buy your super cool plans, do them yourself. This is exactly what Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen did when they went looking for land on which to build their designs....
As young architects in Norway, this house is one of their first projects and overlooks a fjord in Hardanger, Norway.
"A self-initiated and self-financed project. The main dilema for emerging architects is finding clients willing to take a chance with young, enthusiastic architects that have limited experience? When we first started our firm, instead of looking for clients we went looking for plots, to build an experimental structure. Doing this, we could pursue our architectural vision in line with our convictions: uncomprimising, original and respect for the landscape."
