Beautiful houses: Cantilevering home with a spectacular view, Norway

This renovation of a 40 year old house by Element architects from Norway is something quite special. The building leans out over the edge of a steep hillside, and a large window stretching across the width of the cantilever offers a great view across the sea in the distance.

Wood is a dominating material in the building – the interior is warm and modern, while the exterior is a dramatic composition of horizontal and vertical wooden panels referencing the shape of the structure as well as the surrounding buildings.
