You wake up to the birds singing or the snow falling from the trees… The cabin in Solør is situated about 2 hours away from Oslo, just 100 m from the road. It is a small cabin of 48 m2 made of two volumes. It can bear similarities to the 1950s cabins, with no water or electricity. In the living area, the architect has installed a big sliding door, and at the highest, there is 4 m headroom.
The cabin consists of two volumes – the largest is facing the lake and is cladded with solid pine. The pine is stained to give the volume golden and warm patina. The volume shading the residents from the road is cladded with dark spruce. To bring the nature inside the dark spruce is extended into the living area.
The walls in the living area all contain built-in bookshelves and big window frames. The window frames also function as the coffee table.
