In the building of 360 square meters, the architects have worked with refined solutions.
It is becoming more and more common that Norwegian mountain cabins, large and small, as opposition times, exposure of several flavorings in the media and access to new materials and techniques, get a much greater range of architectural features than before.
Norwegian architects think new and creative
Just see how Tim Resen disposed of the space in this double bedroom at Thirty-two meters in Hemsedal and what architect professor Fredrik Lund did with his own single-room cabin at Fosen.
The super compact ski hut of Jarmund&Vigsnæs architects is also an example of the creative freshness that our foremost architects represent. Watch video from the New Nordic architecture exhibition in Louisiana here.
Twisted Cabin follows the kots
– The 360-square mountain hut is located in a fairly steep hill, and it is positioned to follow the contours of the terrain and the hills of the landscape, says the main architect of this construction project in Kvitfjell, Alessandra Kosberg in Jamund&Vigsnæs to Hyttelev. no
An outdoor space with visions
This means, among other things, that a cozy outdoor space is created against the morning sun at the back of the building. “It lies just below a small mountain top that rises in the back,” she explains.
And from this sheltered living room there are views of, among other things, alpine slopes, ski lifts and an easy-going mountain terrain.
Turns to the surroundings and meets the needs of the owners
The cabin consists of seven planes. Hence there are some half-planes and all levels are tied together so that large and small, open and more closed areas and zones around the house arise..
– The cabin is organized so that it will work well both when there are two and reach it ten users, says architect Kosberg to Hytteliv.com
The lower floor has garage, main entrance fireplace and spa area. The main floor houses the master bedroom, ski entrance and kitchen / living room with exit to the morning and evening terrace.
The guest department has five planes
The guesthouse has five levels and contains a loft, bedroom gallery, kitchen, tv playroom, and a bedroom serves as a broker between these two main floors.
The entire family lives on 11 square meters
This helps the facility work well if guests or more generations stay here at the same time.
Dances twist with the landscape
– To achieve all of this we designed the building with a shape that twists and turns in relation to the terrain.
– To put it to the top, one can say that this mountain hut bends in an S-shape and that it dances twist with the landscape and the cows on the slope it lies in, says Alessandra Kosberg to Hytteliv.com
The fireplace in the monumental house is a chapter for itself.
It is dressed with corten steel, a super strong steel type that over time rusts and becomes rustic so the surface visually works warm.
Exterior is the cottage is dressed in larch wood materials. The cladding is laid horizontally, which enhances the S-motion of the building body.
The roof is without visible rays.
Necessary is the oily oak that dominates in almost every room. It is also an extra strong wooden material and it fits perfectly in such an Alpine cabin.
Dropped house became Oslo’s most expensive
The massive flooring, ceiling and wall boards make the interior of the Twisted Cabin remind us of a beautiful piece of furniture.
– JVA is one of the most famous architectural offices in Norway today. And it’s amazingly funny that they claim and Norwegian architecture internationally, “says Nils Anker, art historian and director at the Art Nouveau Center.
– This mountain cabin is spectacularly adapted to the landscape. It is actually modeled in nature in a sensitive way. Everything done is done with a firm hand, the expert points out.
Strong examples in Sverre Fehn and contemporary architecture
– This cottage project is also common with Sverre Fehns buildings. The use of wood and concrete is both playful and extremely form-proof, says the expert.
– And the special lineage shows a conscious attitude to today’s architectural style.
It is far from surprising that Jarmund&Vigsnæs architects have been ranked as one of Europe’s 10 leading architectural offices.
