Kvitfjell Cabin

Nestled in the landscape on the top of Kvitfjell in Norway, this narrow cabin designed by Erling Berg stretches 26 meters to frame the views of the surrounding mountaintops and the horizon beyond towards the southwest.

  • area / size 1,560 sqft
  • Year 2021
  • Location Kvitfjell, Norway,
  • Type House,
  • Using traditional methods of construction, the entire cabin is built out of local pine wood. The exterior, both walls and roof is wrapped in untreated wood panels that will naturally grey over time. The entire interior is wrapped in white oiled pine – keeping the spaces light in the darker winter hours. All though every main room in the cabin has a view south-west, following the sun, bedrooms and bathrooms are kept discreet, with storage in the walls, leaving more space for the open kitchen, dining and family room. Following the topography of the plot, the main living spaces and the en-suite are lowered in the landscape, with vaulted ceilings, creating a spacious atmosphere where the cold nature outside connects with the warm interior through the larger glass openings.
