VALRYGG studio has been working on a museum building to host the exhibition “Lovund boat”. Together with a team of archaeologists, the museum founders wished to preserve the boat found in the depth of the sea close by Lovund. We created a museum were you will be able to visualize the boat in its natural environment within a structure which tells a story about the past and the present.
The shape takes its inspiration from the fish drying racks commonly found along the northern coast of Norway. This steel A-frame shape is lifting the building above sea level creating a monumental and welcoming impression to visitors exploring the picturesque islands of the Norwegian polar circle.
