Vega’s indigenous architecture is a direct response to its extreme environment. Native fisherman’s cabins - known locally as nausts - are commonly found in northern seaside locations. ’The simple quality of the traditional shoreline huts, which families have used for storing fishing equipment, was the inspiration for the [cottage’s] contemporary-vernacular design,’ says Kolman Janouch, who co-founded the practice with Victor Boye Julebäk. The architects’ intention was to create a modern boathouse, inspired by local architecture and materials.
