TYIN tegnestue teamed up with Rintala Eggertsson Architects to produce these amazing artist residencies. ‘Fordypningsrommet Fleinvaer’ is the vision of Håvard Lund, a jazz musician and composer who acquired the site in 2004.
‘Initially it was meant as a workplace for myself, a writing lodge of sorts,as time went on, I felt an urge, a need, to share what I had found on Fleinvær with others. I wanted to create an art workspace unlike anything else in the world.’
Years later, Håvard Lund presented his vision to TYIN Tegnestue who in turn sought the expertise of Sami Rintala of fellow Norwegian firm Rintala Eggertsson Architects. The team then set about designing a workspace where musicians, artists, and other creatives could rent rooms for a range of different timespans. The two practices worked alongside Håvard Lund as well as students and volunteers who were instrumental in realising the project.
