Notheng is a vernacular typology, often referred to as The Coastal Cathedrals: Simplistic yet beautiful constructions where fishermen hang their nets to dry. When not in use, the buildings were utilized for social gatherings: Weddings, concerts, climbing, diving, and even soccer fields.

The structures has not not yet been properly registered by antiquarian authorities or historians. 

For the last couple of years, we have had the pleasure of working closely with journalist and author Arne Blix, in studying and documenting these structures through old images and ruins. Our work aims to give them the attention they deserve, as an important part of our architectural heritage.
