Horn Ferry Landing

Horn, Brønnøysund / Norway


The project`s main objective is to reorganize the ferry boat logistics, parking and pedestrian paths into a node, offering variety of facilities both for daily workers and travellers, while accentuate existing qualities in the landscape.

The main facility is located along a dominant natural stone cliff, consisting of a continuous curved wall defining spaces and activities on each side. Light weighted and durable building materials characterize the traditional coastline architecture of Norway. The objective is to create a structure that provides the qualities of a tent, shelter from wind and rain, yet introduce spatial qualities in the meeting with the cliff, the sea and the view. Openings in the wall frame landscape highlights of the surrounding, suggesting the site as a starting point for various activities. Laser scan of the mountain gives millimetre precision for modelling the structure. CNC milled wooden frame construction is the primary construction. Insulated, translucent, tensile structure is hocked on the primer wooden construction, enclosing warm spaces.
