Svanvik
The border guard base is situated on a natural terrace between a lake and a hillock. The base’s main functions are gathered around an inner courtyard, a clearly defined communal space contrasting with the woodland outside the building. On ground floor level the courtyard walls are dominated by floor to ceiling glass with large sliding doors and the remaining external walls have dark coloured wooden cladding.
