Norm Architects | Yachtbau

Building on the traditions of Scandinavian design and forever influenced by clean aesthetics and natural material palettes, Norm Architects continue to inspire us with their carefully curated architecture.

Their latest unveiling: the interior architecture for the 70 foot yacht, “Bella” (the first of the Y/Yachts model Y7 manufactured in Greifswald by Michael Schmidt Yachtbau) showcases the firm’s incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship. 

Norm’s approach to the interior architecture of the yacht boasts their signature minimal aesthetic within the craft’s spacial restrictions. The firm effortlessly embraces the project, weaving a real warmth and exclusive feel throughout with the implementation of textured surfaces, natural materials and matt finishes. Alongside this, beautifully crafted walls, panels, lighting and furnishings polish off the overall quiet luxury of the yacht’s interior perfectly. 

Norm Architects have brought the natural curves of the ship’s interior to life, applying wood veneer, paper stone, and architectural hardware in blackened steel alongside contrasting smooth and coarse-woven textiles. The quiet luxury of this material palette is furthered more distinctly by the use of lighting. Visitors will delight in inbuilt, subtle lamps that peek out from shelves and cabinets, providing a cosy feel to the yachts interior.
