It’s Still The Traditional Norwegian Log Cabins But With Modern, Eco-friendly Designs
Cabins in Norway, or hyttes as they are locally called, have recently undergone some reinvention. Traditional cabins are usually made of wood and can range from small huts to large lodges. However, these cabins have modernized this concept and incorporated new designs and architecture that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but are also eco-friendly. Check out the list below and see for yourself why these cabins truly embody the modern Scandinavian cabin spirit.
Kvitfjell – This cabin takes inspiration from farming with its suspended structure that is wrapped with Skigard. Skigard are traditional logs used in farming in Norway.
Røldal – This cabin adapts to its surroundings by taking into account its terrain. As such, the cabin is split into two with both having sloped undersides.
Hammerfest – The structure of this cabin takes inspiration from a honeycomb. Aside from being aesthetically-pleasing, this structure actually mimics the place’s arctic setting providing protection against harsh winters.
Tungestølen – This cabin greatly considers the possibility of severe storms through its pentagonal buildings designed to withstand intense wind and rain.
Own Modern Cabin – A design firm has made these ready-to-live-in timber cabins that can be placed on any terrain whether it’s on a mountain, sea or woods.
Few things are more typically Norwegian than resting in a wooden cabin part-way through a long hike or cross-country skiing tour.
