Vilda Brekke Sundström Bergen
School of Architecture
As part of an annual course at the Bergen School of Architecture - deep in the Sognefjord in Norway, near the waterfront of the village of Balestrand - 12 students built LIVD, a pavilion designed to form a new public social space. Designed by student Vilda Brekke Sundström, LIVD consists of five separate brick walls, a concrete and wooden floor and a flat, floating wooden roof. The dividing walls allow several groups to interact simultaneously and provide a place to hang towels or jackets, a sun wall with a bench and a fireplace sheltered from the wind. With its thoughtfully placed brick walls, the pavilion gently guides visitors through the space and highlights the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
