Flesefossen Rest Area

Flesefossen, Brattlandsdalen, Norway

2020

The majestic Flesefossen is the latest intervention along the Ryfylke Norwegian Scenic route. Flesefossen is located along Rv 13 along Bratlandsdalen in Ryfylke. The new rest area introduces an open, spine-like structure that filters views and creates a permeable boundary between the road and the waterfall.

 

The curvy layout offers vistas, sitting possibilities and a service building. Parking space and seating groups in the terrain are also part of this intervention, inviting visitors down to the riverside. Built in steel and timber, the curved structure emphasizes the erosive forces that has been designing this valley for thousands of years.
