Atelier Oslo's latest project is an impressive cabin located in the Krokskogen forest in Norway and immediately takes our breath away. Cabin Norderhov is a project that gives you an amazing view of the nearby lake and provides shelter from the wind. Moreover, the cabin is organised in such a way that it receives sunlight at different times of the day.
The design studio Atelier Oslo was founded in 2006 and focuses on identifying key challenges. They offer a spectrum of ideas and solutions. Each project focuses on creating high-quality architecture that emphasises elements such as structure, materiality, space and light. Atelier Oslo has a diverse portfolio ranging from larger projects to single-family homes.
Unusual and interesting geometry.
The recent project called Cabin Norderhov, designed by Atelier Oslo, is located on a steep slope above Lake Steinsfjorden. The architects from Atelier Oslo have created a design that is in harmony with the surrounding nature. The exterior of the house is clad in basalt shingles to mimic the traditional wooden cladding. The result is an angular structure on four light levels, creating different zones for living, eating, bathing and sleeping. The fireplace is located in the centre of the building, visible from all points in the house. This gives a feeling of a campfire in the middle of the landscape. It also invites the guests to come together and, above all, to enjoy themselves.
Cabin Norderhov, with its curved walls and ceilings made of birch plywood, appears to be one continuous space. The floor-to-ceiling windows give a wonderful view of the nearby lake and blur the boundaries between inside and outside. The main structure is made of laminated wood and is supported by steel rods drilled directly into the rock. In short, an unusual and interesting geometry.
