Resumen del libro

Whether set along the picturesque coast of Norway or in its remote mountains and forests, architect Wenche Selmer's wooden cabins and houses blend effortlessly into their surroundings. Combining local building traditions with modern conveniences, her designs evoke Norway in all its rugged beauty and smart Scandinavian pragmatism. Just looking at these cabins is an invitation to sit down at the lovingly designed dining table for a hearty meal, or to curl up with a book on one of the inviting corner sofas while enjoying the panoramic view through large glass windows. These are houses that, while thoughtfully designed and beautifully crafted, were meant first and foremost to be lived in, and it is this accommodation of high design and livability that is partly responsible for their universal appeal.Norwegian Wood is the first book on the life and architecture of WencheSelmer(1920-1998) one of the few women who gained prominence among European architects in the mid-twentieth century. Fourteen of her beautiful wooden cabins and houses are featured in detailed descriptions, plans, and a wealth of archival images and newly commissioned color photography. Whether you're planning to build your own vacation home, have always loved Scandinavian design or simply enjoy the warmth and sensuality of wooden architecture, you'll find plenty of inspiration here.
