Rest area and toilet structure

The outer skin of the toilet structure entails a custom made facade cladding made from recycled local fishing nets. The cladding is designed and made in collaboration with Nordic Comfort Products with support from Innovation Norway. This introduces a new approach of contextualizing architecture by using recycles local materials that come from the very ocean Madland harbour harnesses.

The rest area is situated on a plateu with panorama view of the vast boulder beaches of Varhaug.

Storm cabin

The aim of the storm cabin is to create shelter from the harsh elements at Madland where the view of the thrilling waves that hammer the harbour moles is the main attraction. The building draws reference from the typical fishing shed with open end glazed gable towards the sea.
