When one structure simply isn't good enough, the architectural experts at WRB Architects will knock it down and create an awesome new abode -- just as they did with the Gunderson House in Haugesund, Norway. This 145 sq. meter home was once the location of another fairly new structure; however WRB Architects figured they could design a better use of this coastal space.
With its expansive south-facing patio, priceless ocean views, and a carefully thought-out design that shelters homeowners from steep winds that come from the north, the Gunderson House, truly is an modern abode!
Implications - As more consumers continuously yearn to develop tighter bonds with nature, companies should be considerate of this potential opportunity for products and services. Those businesses that can create products that bring consumers closer to nature will continue to be far out-valued over those that don't.
The Gunderson House is the Epitome of Sweet Shoreline Living
