Hardanger Retreat

Hardanger Retreat Saunders

This retreat was desgined and built by Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen. A self-initiated and self-financed project. The main dilema for emerging architects is finding clients willing to take a chance with young, enthusiastic architects that have limited experience. When we first started our firm, instead of looking for clients we went looking for plots, to build an experimental structure. Doing this, we could pursue our architectural vision in line with our convictions: uncompromising, original and respect for the landscape.
