About

Overview
The “Refugium” on the small island of Fleinvær outside of the coast of northern Norway is a cluster of buildings serving as a hideout for tourists and an artist residency. The cluster is designed in a collaboration between Rintala Eggertsson Architects and Tyin Tegnestue and built in a series of building workshop taking place in 2015 and 2016.

The aim was to establish a balance between the buildings and the landscape by breaking each volume down to a scale which suited the barren topography.

While being functional and ergonomic, the buildings can be seen as nature observatories, with framed views from inside and outside rooms towards the landscape, draped by the ever changing weather in the area.
