Dark and Minimal: Contemporary Norwegian Cabins with Wooden Warmth

Winter might be taking its toll on you and the snow outside just never seems to go away. It is precisely in these moments that one is drawn to the charm and warmth of a beautiful cabin next to snow-clad slopes! These cozy, comfortable and modern escapes take you away from constant rush and allow you to enjoy a hot drink or four while admiring the view outside. Nestled in an area renowned for cross-country skiing, Cabin Sjusjøen finds an exquisite balance between modern minimalism and classic Scandinavian design. Designed by Aslak Haanshuus Arkitekter, the cabin is made of 12 triangular planes and its sheltered, L-shaped ends keep the interior toasty warm!

Modern minimalism meets Scandinavian simplicity at the Cabin

The most striking feature of the cabin from a distance is definitely is carbonized wooden board exterior that stands out even more thanks to the snowy slopes. Despite its minimal form, the interior is inviting and tasteful. A dark kitchen island, ample storage and shelf space along with Scandinavian style décor ensure that your stay here is pleasant and hassle-free. Prefabricated wooden elements inside the cabin present a lighter tone. A series of continuous windows open up the shelter towards the views outside with top-notch insulation keeping out the chills.
