Inspiration from architect:

Meditate upon your surroundings and encounter the environment. In the cyclist house at Grunnfør, Lofoten, you can contemplate the view and be in contact with the surrounding nature in a 360° panorama: an observation post in the landscape, barely visible but very present on the site.
