Cabin for Ski Lovers in one of the Most Popular Areas of Norway

By • Mar 30, 2018

In Sjusjøen, one of Norway’s most popular areas for skiing, this fabulous cabin is located, has 133 square meters and the project was carried out in 2017 by the architecture firm Aslak Haanshuus Arkitekter. It is a fast and concentrated development of cabins, tilted to the west with views of the Gudbrandsdalen valley and strong winds from the north. This makes it important to try to protect yourself from the wind and establish private spaces near the building.

The cabin is built with prefabricated solid wood elements, visible on the interior walls and ceiling. The walls and the exterior ceilings are covered with charred wood panels, which makes the cabin stand out in the white winter landscape.

The plan is solved within a strict geometric concept. 12 identical triangles make up the shape of the cabin, and the levels and interior rooms are organized within the geometry. Along with the minimal details, this gives the building a dynamic and clear presence. The continuous windows connect all the rooms with the view of the valley. The larger windows are next to a covered terrace, inside the kitchen and the living room, and through the hall where the rooms are located.
