Dune House in Bergen by Min2 Architects

Like a cottage straight out of a fairytale, the Dune House by Min2 carries us somewhere magical in Bergen on the west coast of Norway. The sloped roof introduces us to the three story structure innocently, lit up like a dollhouse the windows reveal the wonder hidden inside. Towering tree trunk pillars bark still intacked hoist the gingerbread frame.  Large windows enhance the view of the nearby dunes. Their soft images kiss just about everywhere you look. Elements natural to the outdoors made their way into the design, such as the Douglass Fir beams or the seaweed carpet. On the exterior brown/purple British clay tiles cover three sides to compliment the surrounding fir bark. “An important design topic was to connect the form and the materialisation of the house with the place where it is situated. The high tall form had to fit in the dune landscape. During the design process this form became one of a dune or of a windswept group of trees sloping along with the worn landscape near the sea.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
