The ideas of the project by Imago for the Jøssingfjorden competition is to link the landscape to the new building and the building to the entire scenario of Jøssingfjorden; it’s valleys and context, both visual, historical and technological. The architecture of the proposal will express the power and intentions that people have had for generations. It will make use of the most developed technologies and formal principles as they did according to their time. More images and architects’ description after the break.

Children Section: 530 sq.m
Covered Terrace: 290 sq.m

Before summer 2010, when PAPER | TOTEMENT was invited to design some new constructions, the house territory had been already changed a few times with new additions that were not within the scope of the initial project – a summer kitchen with a sunshade ground and a guest house appeared. It was clear to them that further development of the initial architectural style meant a complete loss of at least some consistency of constructions on the site or it could be overwhelmed by a lot of buildings. Besides, it would continue an architectural idea which was absolutely alien to them. Therefore, they decided that something absolutely different in contrast to all that was around not only on the given site, but also along the territory which one can see at a glance, would allow the house to receive a new status, a new quality and a new scale.
