scs: 2” x 2” bathing terrace
The location of this project is in Nusfjord, one of the best preserved cod fishing villages in Lofoten and now historically protected. It has been converted from a fishing village used in the darkest winter months to a summer tourist resort. The design of the 2” x 2” bathing platform is a re-interpretatio in timber of the massive rock landscape on which it sits. The ondulating terrace contains a sun-deck with various bathing facilities, including a sauna and a hot tub. The project faces the mouth of the fjord and in winter is battered by waves which pass over the roofs of the adjoining buildings. The uplift force of these waves was countered by a massive underbuilding structure and a terrace which is 50% open to let the water through and thus offer as little resistance as possible.
