Essay by Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, Snøhetta

Our new book News in Nordic Architecture includes a special essay by architect Kjetil Trædal Thorsen from Snøhetta with his thoughts on what it means to be nordic.

It’s an interesting essay portrayed with beautiful photografies.

“ ‘Nordic’ relates to something or someone having its roots in Scandinavia. The implicit meanings of someone, or something, being Nordic is, however, much wider, especially when paired up with nouns such as ‘society’, ‘values’ and, why not, ‘architecture’. ” (Kjetil Trædal Thorsen)

#16 Vacation in the westerly wind

While the rain falls and the wind blows Holiday Home Henne is hiding in the big dunes at the Danish west coast perfectly suited for the rough weather.

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

“The climate is tough with an almost constant strong westerly wind. The house has a courtyard facing south to embrace the light and sunshine, and to provide shelter. The irregular shape of the house is the result of optimising space with direct views to the sea.”

“Are we outside looking in, or inside looking out? It is not important – what is important is the simultaneous merging and separation of these two worlds.”
