Lund Hagem Architects - Villas and Small Houses
he Oslo-based architecture and urban design group Lund Hagem is celebrated for their sensitivity to the interplay of form, material, and landscape in their forwardthinking structures and environments. In developing the individual design of each building, the firm deftly analyze the built and natural environment and determine which parts of a site should remain unbuilt, and which microclimates best lend themselves to domestic living. This large heavily illustrated monograph edited by Julie Cirelli and with an introduction by Erling Dokk Holm, showcases Lund Hagems small buildings and cabins in which the relationship between each building and its natural site achieves maximum effect. Lush photographs, schematics and project floor plans all illustrate how the local landscape and architecture shape the formal and material vocabulary of their contemporary architecture and its deep roots in the Nordic tradition.
