‘Hide In Rock’ Home By EL Design

Artistic recreations of already-built living spaces might strike an odd nerve for some, but it’s undeniable that modern-day architects must utilize (and draw inspiration) from the interpreted visions of their peers. Such is the case with EL Design’s “Hide In Rock” home, which elaborates on the original project of Norway-based architecture firm, Lund Hagem.

The Hide In Rock home is a modern, enhanced version of Lyngholmen, the beautifully realized wood and concrete dwelling placed atop an archipelago island just south of Aust-Agder, Norway. Built along a shallow, oceanfront waterway, the site is exposed to gratuitous amounts of sunlight, a calming palette of sounds and colors, and a bevy of smooth, rounded rock faces. The original home is comprised of two wings connected by an auspicious outdoor terrace — one, hosting an open floor living area, kitchen, and master bedroom — and the other, a room for the children of the home, as well as a guest’s study. To traverse between the altitudinal terraces, a transitional stairway mediates a path between white concrete and wood platforms, while an interesting canopy extends overhead. Choice materials of ash, glass, and concrete adorn the interior (and exterior) of the space, serving to unite Lyngholmen with its surrounding landscape.
