The cabin should be placed on a sloping plot. The result was a long and narrow cabin body hanging out over the terrain.

This is the same cabin
A legacy plot at Lista, hilly in its topography, became the site of the fulfillment of a cabin dream.
– The first meeting with the plot was indescribable and we knew we had to build a cabin that brought the beautiful nature into. We contacted an architect and started an intense design and construction process. The resort should be sheltered and easy to maintain, says the owners Åse and Stein Grytten.
In the middle of nature
The result was “The Weather”, a cabin that hangs out in the terrain with large windows that give residents a sense of being outside even if they are in.
When we sit in the room we feel that we are in the middle of the landscape, the light comes in from several edges and the scenery is amazing. The cabin is only 100 sqm, but we experience an incredible sense of space in this compact building because of the large glass surfaces and ceiling height.
The outermost part of the cabin hangs in the terrain and contributes to the experience of floating in nature. This way you also get insight and the cabin becomes very private.

Lighting and View
The living room with kitchen is located in the glass bowl with light and view.
The sleeping area and bathroom is built at the other end tied together with a longitudinal corridor.
Exterior is the hut with cedar and the hanging part has large, heat-dampened glass inserts with black aluminum profiles.
Inner walls that are not glass are sparkling and painted in bright colors. The main structure consists of black painted columns and longitudinal steel supports that give a rough look.
An important point for us was and is a maintenance-free cabin, materials that hold and windscreen without cracks so we do not have to paint them.
Civil Architect Odd Klev was challenged when he would draw the cabin in the hilly terrain. The plot ends with a marked level leap down the road to the north. The glimpse of the sea lies in the same direction.
Klev says that the cabinet dramatizes the topography of the plot because it cracks over the north of the north – it is also an elaborate visual delineation of the living areas to the east. The building body thus shields against sight and wind.
The roof rises to the north so the glass area is maximized towards the sea view. The living zone is set north, while the quiet zones lie to the south.
Material uses are visible black painted steel columns and longitudinal steel supports. The roof is an air-conditioned wooden structure clad with stone slabs. The outer walls are covered with cedar and heat-absorbing glass in black aluminum profiles.
The outdoor groups have been added to shielded parts of the plot, and a small seating area overlooks the archipelago. It is sown lawn and one of the outside departments is sheltered, but most of the natural habitat is taken care of.
The couple are talking warmly about the area around Lista and Farsund. An undiscovered gem, they tell. With a great archipelago without too much traffic and people.
– Our resort is not big and we have chosen a standard that means we do not have to do much here. We have short driving distance from the home in Mandal and the cabin has good facilities. It causes
It’s a lot in use.
