TYIN Tegnestue's Boathouse in Norway

A boathouse for storing boats and fishing gear converted for recreational summer use

Although the original boathouse had to be torn down, the simplicity of the old building combined with its effective placement and the use of materials became a source of inspiration for the architects. Many materials were reused: the internal panelling, the windows and the concrete walls. The exterior cladding is impregnated with a by-product from the sugar cane industry, which weathers to a grey colour. The shutters on the long side open with steel fittings.
