The cabin is exposed to the rough winds coming from the ocean, bringing salt and sea. You can enjoy the panoramic views from all the rooms in the cabin. During the summer the sun bathe the building with its rays from sunrise to dawn.
The cabin is made up of three separate volumes placed underneath one unifying roof. The volumes are creating an inner atrium shed from the rough winds. This atrium functions as an outdoor living space and is the most used room – it is seen as an extension of the interior. The atrium floor is terraced to blend into the rocky landscape – it follows the natural form of the surroundings – it bears a resemblance to the Greek amphitheaters. This open space faces the beach and the ocean, the terrace can be used as benches.
Each volume has its functions – living space, bedrooms, and master bedroom/working area. The volumes create different “rooms” in the amphitheater. The focal point of the cabin is the concrete chimney. Instead of cladding the chimney to make it blend with the design, the architect chose to expose the concrete. Like a lighthouse, the chimney lights up the cabin and keeps the building in place when the autumn storm rages outside.
The cabin is cladded with aspen – a material that will change over time and turn into a silver-gray patina which again will make the cabin blend into the scenery and surrounding landscape. Around all windows oiled pine can be found, and concrete is used in all external plinths. In the interior untreated pine is used in the ceiling. The floors are made of concrete and create an illusion of the rocky landscape. On warm summer days – the floors will feel like the tempered rocky ground heated by the sun.
