A TINY CABIN WITH A TWIST

THIS DESIGN BREAKS FREE FROM THE USUAL LOOK CABINS, AND IT DOES SO WITH STYLE AND COMFORT IN MIND

 This cabin in Norway is an example of a traditional Norwegian cabin called a hytte. This time, the architects put their own twist on the traditional design. Rather than giving the cabin the usual gabled roof, the structure was divided into sections to create a pinwheel design. This design gives its residents a full 360-degree view of the surrounding Norwegian landscape.

The concept of the Norwegian hytte features a compact and efficient design. This combined with a modern take on the general design has created a home that’s both small and comfortable for modern families. The cabin is just 900 square feet in size, but it can comfortably accommodate up to ten people.

The cabin “breaks apart the traditional rectangular cabin building plan into a pinwheel which radiates into the landscape to both frame four distinct views—Mylla Lake, the rolling hillside, the sky, and a towering forest—and to form wind- and snow-sheltered outdoor patios,” say the architects, who also have an office in San Francisco.
