An interpretation of a traditional boathouse, a classic vernacular structure on the west coast of Norway transformed into a space for leisure. As the Norwegian coastline is considered common property, regulations are conservative regarding size, use and appearance. Hence, the dichotomy between the regulations and new leisure culture forces an old typology to take a new form. At daytime the naust is subordinated to the local traditions at distance, whilst unveiling unexpected qualities when given a closer look.
