House Envy: Sublime Simplicity Defines a Norwegian Cabin
By Freshome.com - Interior Design & Architecture Magazine on Apr 04, 2014
This mountain holiday home was especially envisioned by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter as a contemporary retreat for a family of four. Situated near the village Geilo, a popular skiing destination in Norway, Split View Mountain Lodge frames the spectacular views and allows easy access when it comes to skiing and hiking activities. According to the architects, the owners’ brief requested a home with four bedrooms, separate living and dining areas, a youth lounge and a mezzanine for the younger children. In addition, a small annex was also on the list of the clients for accommodating visiting friends and family.
The challenge was successfully met: “Our response was a cabin of clear and clean-cut expression with a continuous skin of timber cladding on the exterior walls and roof, which will acquire a grey patina with time. The volume consists of a main body, housing mostly bedrooms, which follow the natural contours of the landscape and splits into two living zones“, explained the architects. All interiors pay tribute to the modern-minimalist style, with wood being used in abundance for a welcoming feel. What are your thoughts on this Norwegian holiday ski lodge?
