One of the most important points of having a cabin is to be in close contact with nature. At least, the owners of these nine cabins are like this.

Even though all these cabins can be invaded as modern, they have an important common feature: They make sure that you live in close contact with the outside landscape.

Terrain adaptation has been important here.

Whether you are planning to build or purchase a cottage in traditional style or want a more modern expression, you will find useful ideas in these nine Norwegian projects.

Are we inside or outside?

In architect Reiulf Ramstad’s own cabin on Hvaler, one can confuse inside with outside. And maybe it’s no big deal. The windows open up to the landscape and wipe out the boundaries. The narrow cabin forms a kind of atrium in the middle – an outdoor space that shines for the wind and at the same time connects with the surrounding coastal landscape.

Maximum Terrain Adaptation

55 square foot cottage in a narrow mountain range.

This cabin on the West Coast coast is shaped like a triangle, simply because it was killed into a crack in the mountains. Although, “kilt” is not exactly exact. A figure-cutting plot goes partly around the cabin, allowing you to move between the cabin and the pillows.

Buildings survive their contemporaries, and they will work and arouse interest for decades, “said Cecilie Wille of Morfeus architects about the project.

A cabin that gazes at the Northwest Atlantic in the white island has to withstand a good storm sometimes. This cabin, designed by Bengt Espen Knutsen, is built with oblique walls that make the wind never really get well but bends over and above the building.

Also viewed from the inside has the cabin attributes that remind you of a castle. Here it is a sheltered outdoor space, a kind of courtyard, where no water spray and soothing wind can escape.

The new hut?

Hytte Woody outside Drøbak near the Oslo Fjord is a blow to the simple cabin life. Despite its modest 35 square meters, the cottage accommodates both living room, dining room, kitchen, fireplace, loft, shower and do.

The architect behind, Marianne Borge, hopes that the concept can become a people’s hut as it is aimed at families with small children who want to spend between one and two million in a cabin and are concerned with environment and modern design.

Plywood, signal colors and flexible platter

The coastal landscape on Stokkøya along Trøndelang coast is as magnificent as Oggmund Sørlis cottage is modest. In only 32 square meters, he has been given the space needed to live a good cabin life. The interior is dressed with plywood, and strong colors are used on selected surfaces so that the gray weather never gets overwhelming.

A raised and lowered front terrace increases the ground floor area of ​​15 sqm and helps to tie together inside and outside.

Lodge on the crack

Due to a thick mountain cliff, this cabin site at Stavern in Vestfold seemed impossible to build on, at least almost.

But by placing the cabin on top of the crack, the architects Lund Hagem struck at least two flies in one taste: the neutralized burst while creating natural and good outdoors right at the cabin.

And without smacking a kinaputt once.

Any cottage exposed to the Northwest Atlantic should be built for rough weather. Fantastic Norway cottage on Fosen in Nord-Trøndelag looks like a reef crumbling with the back to the wind. The sloping walls take care of the worst storm boxes, and the semi-open space, or atrium, ensures that there is a small microclimate where it is mostly hot and good to be.

Do you see the cabin?

Some cottage owners blast away shiny granite and chop crooked pines in their heights for maximum views. Others are more keen to play on teams with the natural prerequisites found on the site.

Kragerø cabin designed by Brit Bødtker Sejersted is a school example of terrain adaptation. Here the building is built around the toes, which both gives the cabin character and helps it barely visible from the water.

100 sqm in slate and osp

How to build a cabin of 100 square meters without ruining the terrain? Architect Preben Holst chose to dress walls and roofs in Norwegian natural materials such as slate and untreated osp, which means that the cabin does not blink right at you.

Although the building is over two floors, and the woods are relatively short-waxed, never crosses the tree tops. In addition, several of the old pine trees in front of the cabin have been preserved, so it seems that the cabin has already been there for many, many years.
