Coveted Crib: A Minimalist and Sublime Summer House

While this is technically more of a room than a house, I'm still lusting over this remote, woodsy Norway Summer getaway. Part of its appeal is the location, of course. Situated on the 170-kilometer-long Hardanger Fjord, this area abounds in insanely beautiful landscapes, with waterfalls, glaciers, gardens, fields, and mountains to choose from. I can just imagine filling long Summer evenings with bicycle or kayak trips punctuated by a chilly dip in the fjord and followed by a glass of Aquavit on this modern deck.

Built by Saunders Architecture, which is based in Bergen, the house was self-financed as an experimental project that showcased the architects' desire to design uncompromising, original buildings that reflect their respect for the landscape.
