Situated in the Norwegian city of Larvik, Vindlyveien was designed by the architect Ulrik Hellum (1931 – 2016), known for his simple huts that are perfectly at one with nature. With this timber bungalow built in 1967 Hellum has realized the concept of a holiday cottage in a residential area. At the end of dead end street on a sunny hill near the sea, the house is embedded between rocks and meadows, sheltered from the wind and prying eyes. Behind the modest, typical summer house  façade, there are spacious rooms across nearly 180 sq m of living space. All white with bright, colourful accents, these rooms will remind you of bright summer days and they radiate with typical Scandinavian flair. The house has three bedrooms for two people each, but the sofa beds offer additional sleeping space. There is a living room with two sitting areas and a library with a desk, as well as a dining room with an open kitchen. In both rooms fireplaces provide warmth and extra “hygge” feeling on cold days .

What to do

The sea is not far away (250 meters). The nearby Hvittensand beach is considered one of the best kite spots in Norway. Many hiking possibilities, especially along the coast of Vestfold (Kyststien). Numerous historical sites from the time of the Vikings. Fantastic nature.

Why we like this house

Unspectacular from outside, but inside a dream for fans of Scandinavian design.

This house is great for

Holidays with families and friends.
