Through the process of constant adaption of buildings to the farm, the complex can be regarded as a form of culture, not only from the past, but also a relevant culture for contemporary living
The Haabakka farm complex consists of five buildings located on a slope in the upper parts of Guddal, approx. 5 km from the town of Rosendal. The historical buildings form a cluster, with the housing units located in the center. With the traditional western Norwegian long-house as a reference, an architectural framework for the project was established; the infill-addition would be constructed as a pragmatic and distinct feature to the complex, both externally and internally.
