The Lodge

The name Lauritz Lodge is inspired by the most famous resident to ever have lived at Kvitsøy, the internationally recognized marine painter Lauritz Haaland.

The essence of Lauritz Lodge is to bring the hospitality of Kvitsøy Island together with the history of art, the lighthouse and incredible marine environment to create one of the most unique locations Norway has to offer. The spirit of Lauritz Haaland can only add to the inspiration you will feel whilst staying at the Lodge.

Architecture and interior

Lauritz Lodge is built within the grounds of a villa which holds specialist status as a listed property.

The architecture and materials used to complete the build of the lodge are similar to those used on a traditional barn, from the beginning of the 19th century.

The tall ceiling and open space give the interior an airy quality. The window and door façade facing the patio and lighthouse offers a stunning view and a strong indoor-outdoor connection with the environment.

“We are storytellers, and the chief ingredients in all our stories are form, quality and comfort”, Dag Hjelle.

Our aim is that this statement said by the owner of L.K. Hjelle, also could be the experience of the design and interior for all our guests, staying at the lodge.

The main furniture package is delivered by Haukås Møbler, Stavanger and comprise design icons from both Hjelle and Tonning & Stryn.
