Surrounded on all sides by natural beauty, Foten Café fits wonderfully into its setting, even with its modern and functional architecture.
The weather-beaten Norwegian coast makes high demands when it comes to a strong façade, and SiOO:X environmentally friendly wood treatment protects the timber, gives it an extra-long lifetime and keeps the surface looking just as good, year after year.
The cladding, roof and railing are made from sawn fir, Sioo:x treated in the façade colour Light Grey. The colour works very well with both the nearby rocks and the clear water.
A uniform, attractive colour without any visible knots or run-off at nails or fittings. SiOO:X strive to produce a uniform, attractive colour, both inside and outside the roof, and there are no colour differences on any wall. Knots are barely visible and have the same colour as the rest of the walls, without any run-off beneath nails or fittings.
The floor is untreated, pressure impregnated pine decorated with quotations of various types painted in green.
