At about 1100 meters above sea level, with a fantastic view from east to west, the site was scenic, but challenging. Rough weather conditions, with winds reaching hurricane level and snow depths of a potential five meters, were crucial premises for the design.
The cabin is shaped to protect against the climate, with the entrance and outdoor space shielded from the wind in two directions. The L-shaped building follows the contours of the slope and the bedrooms are stepped according to the terrain.
The tectonic language is dictated by the zoning and organizing of the interior functions – the bedrooms and living space are clad in wood while the entrances, bathrooms and storage rooms are clad with local stone. The external wooden cladding is made from untreated Norwegian pine with high oil content for natural protection.
