A new residential area with single family houses is developed in an extraordinary and at the same time very difficult to built landscape situation. The site is located in a steep and rocky terrain with the lowest part of the site ending at the coast line of the fjord. The complexity of the situation in itself requires a non-standard masterplan solution. Four unique types of houses were developed to adapt to the landscape and make use of their unique position. Some of the houses can be accessed from the roof terrace via the existing road leading up the hill and the rest of them could be reached via the new street that is planned along the coastline ending up with the newly made pier. The dwellings are designed in a modern style, each of the four types has a different layout of the plan, different facade design and finishing materials. What is in common, however, for all the houses is the large windows to the fjord, large open terraces and smart parking solutions.
