Talented Torbjørn Tryti from Taktil Architects in Oslo designed this cabin for an active family of five, on the Reineskarvet mountain in Ål, Norway.

The result: A comfortable and functional house with lasting qualities. Measuring 124 m², it has five bedrooms, a library, a lofty family room, open plan kitchen and dining area, a bathroom and a sauna. We love the large corner window in the living room – This view is an instant feel good!

The cabin was built tough to withstand the mountain weather and climate at 1,100 meters above sea level. The wood clad exterior offers great protection, but it also ages well with time and easily blends right into its breathtaking surroundings.To view more pics, visit Taktil Architects.

    Interesting design thou I’m not sure about energy efficiency of such a long house. Do you know if it was intended for all year continuous living or only as a holiday / vacation cabin?

      Hi Lech, I don’t think I can answer your question… The text about the cabin is in Norwegian. Maybe one of our reader who speaks the language can help out?
