Text description provided by the architects.

(Photo: Rasmus Norlander )Cabin Vindheim is situated deep into the forest, in the alpine landscape close to Lillehammer / Norway.The cabin is inspired by the classic motif of snowbound cabins. When snow covers the structure the division between architecture and nature becomes blurred, and the roof becomes a man-made slope for ski jumping, toboggan runs and other snow-based activities.

In spite of a compact floor plan (55m2) the cabin is spatially rich and generous due to the sloping roof and the various uplifts.

From the main bedroom and the mezzanine you can even gaze up at the stars and enjoy the northern light, while lying in bed. When resting in the cabin’s bedroom, a large 4m-long window creates the impression of sleeping above the treetops and underneath the stars.

The building, which is composed of a large living room, a bedroom, a ski preparation room and a small annex with a utility room, is clad in black-stained ore pine.
