Naust paa Aure by TYIN tegnestue Architects

Strips of glazing wrap the walls and roof of a timber waterside summerhouse in Aure, Norway.

Designed by architects TYIN tegnestue, the building is made of materials that were salvaged from a dilapidated boathouse on the site, plus new grey-patinated pine.

Flaps in the facade lift upwards to open the interior onto a deck.

Interior walls are lined with unfinished timber and a wood-burning pan hangs from the ceiling.

Here's a description of the project from the architects:


TYIN tegnestue Architects

Traditional Norwegian boat houses have been used to store boats and fishing gear,but now many of them are being converted for recreational summer use.

At this site, the existing boat house was in bad shape and had to be torn down, but its simple shape, sensible placement and honest use of materials inspired the new building.

A lot of the materials were reused, either as shuttering for the concrete walls and footings or as internal panelling.

Windows from the client's farmhouse were also reused. The exterior cladding is Norwegian pine impregnated with a by-product from the sugar cane industry, which will give grey patina.

The shutters on the long side swing open with the help of simple steel fittings. A flexible process, which allowed on-site design reactions, has been essential to the result.

    Truly amazingly rustic design.

  • scj

    I love the naturalness and earthy beauty of this but it looks as though it would take a herd of elephants to lift the flaps!

  • edward

    Beautiful and interesting work but it's more a pavilion than a house.

    • Jens

      It's a BOAT HOUSE.

  • yoob

    I thought I had lost all hope in architecture but now I´m on my knees praying for forgiveness.

  • Asbjørn

    The flaps are in fact quite light.

  • Julián

    An awesome project. I loved the fact the architects used recycled materials and a kind of language based on tradition and sense of place. The space is simple, but the details, and the structure design make this one a rmarkable building on this landscape. Congratulations.

    I have one personal sugestion; respectfully, i'd like to see the building in a more natural kind of photography, the project is simple and honest, so the photography must do the same and use less technical effects, less hdr, that make the building looks artificial.

    What exactly are you supposed to use it for? Stand inside and get warm?

  • jdisa

    Where does the smoke go?

  • Thomas

    It's a boat house, like the text says!

  • e1o27

    really beautiful project. that skewed section is a delight! and those timber doors!!

  • ece

    Good to remember that architecture is not about recent high technology.

  • kms

    It is a beautiful and simple project but I have to agee with jdisa, I am legitimately a little worried about CO poisoning from this project! Am I missing something here? Make sure to keep the doors open when the fire is going please!

    Reminds me of Tom Kundigs work–perfectly in harmony with the natural setting.

  • kspark

    I like flaps in the facade…and steel fitting on the stone naturally…..I can feel comfortable there…..

  • Owner

    No problem with the smoke. The construction allow the smoke to escape from above the flaps and we have never experienced problems in this respect. The flaps are not that heavy (operated by one person). The boat house is for boats and for recreational use in summer season. The total space (indoor/outdoor) allows many different activities depending on whether we have been out fishing or if we arrange a good dinner for friends

      Looks awesome, and I can see it must be fantastic fun to use! Well done architect and client!

    Beautiful place – not to mention the location in this amazing landscape. The integration with the rocks and the use of materials are great.
