The owners have to climb up to the cabin which is on a mountain shelf.

The spectacular cabin on Haugastøl has a splendid owner. And that is the view that controlled the entire design when civil architect MNAL Margrethe Rosenlund of Morfeus Architects designed it.

It was built on a shelf in a steep slope. The living rooms are laid in front with many windows facing Hardangervidda.

The rooms are tied together by a gang zone with storage and service features at the rear. The Gangson is open at both ends to reach the outside from all sides, but also to ensure there is always a door blown to snow.

The architect says that the weather and the sky are part of the main room with one wall of glass, the view is captured and nature is present all the time.

Material selection is thoughtful. Where there is snow, the outer wall is in concrete. While it is used granular panels on walls that have less accumulation of snow.

The panel is extra wide and is only treated with iron vitriol to achieve even graying.

Inside, solid wood birch has been used on floors, walls and ceilings.

– A natural choice of materials because the cabin is located directly above a forest grove of mountain birch, says civilian architect Margrethe Rosenlund. She says that in addition to the glow in the material, the room warms, solid wood is comfortable to touch while it smells good.

Beds, sofas and shelves are carved by excess floor materials. Wardrobes and kitchens have fronts of birch veneer. Like the others of the cabin’s furniture, it is carved on the spot by the architect and her husband.

Margrethe Rosenlund says she designed the cabin for her mother.

So smart can a mountain hut become

After many years as a relief worker in Asia, she would return to Norway. She spent a lot of time in the mountains and wanted a cabin there. My mother is used to rough cows, among other things, because of her backbones in India, Africa and South America – and not least the skiing in Svalbard.

Most preferably she would have had a koie without electricity and water, far in the distance.

Neat Interior

But to lure children and grandchildren to the unique cabin, it was built near the train and road. Power and water were added, but the simplicity of the desired koia is well taken care of.

The rooms are not a centimeter bigger than they have to be. Nevertheless, there is room for overnight guests. It is arranged for accommodation in all the hooks, on the loft above the bedrooms as well as on the bays and benches in the living room.

The cabin’s front can be opened to nature

For the same reason, the bathroom is added to several small rooms so that it is possible to use the different features at the same time.

– The interior is sober and the furniture is space-built. For my mother, the cabin works so well that she will try to live there more or less. Maybe it’s not koia anyway, says architect Rosenlund.
