At approximately 800 meter above sea level, halfway up the Olympic slopes at Kvitfjell, Base Camp is located among alpine runs and close to hotels and public facilities.
The site is steeply raked towards the south, with building volumes aligned along the contours, in order to meet the challenge of situating large volumes in steep terrain. The result is the creation of traditional parallel courtyards between the buildings. The site plan envisages a total of seven ‘Basecamp Houses’, of which three have been built. Each house contains three floors with a total of nine apartments, each unit having an approximate area of 65 m². Building facades are roughly milled board cut-off, with a rustic appearance which confirms their robustness in a harsh environment.
