One of the most striking aspects of the interior is the opaque nature of the top structure in contrast with the stark white interior.
The project is a winter cabin to be built in a highly restricted area in the mountain landscape of Ål in Norway. The cabin is designed as a landscape element that leads wind and snow around and over the building. One of the client’s initial wishes was to be able to actually go skiing, sledge riding and picnicking on top of the cabin.
The cabin is to be erected during late summer 2012 by Fantastic Norway
