Bygg og Hygg Festival

“Bygg og Hygg” is an expression suited for the feeling of building something awesome with new and old friends on a perfect summer day, between a great meal and a swim in the river.

Bygg og Hygg is a the result of a quest for the perfect Design/Architecture/Art festival in which great design merges with construction, sculpture, music and food. To achieve these ambitious goals we have organized the festival into three stages.


The first stage is a design competition in which participants will design a 15 cubic meter timber sauna.

The competition is being launched on May 1.  and the hand in date is June 30.

The second stage is the really fun part. We are putting together a timber building workshop in our farm which will last for two weeks. During the workshop we will build the winning proposal - and our own forest community in the process.  Our plan is to pack all that fun into two weeks of good times, outdoors and lasting experiences.  

The third stage will be the perfect evening we have built together. We’ll arrange a sauna party where all your friends are invited, there will be music, good food and a rocking dance floor all night!
