Hunting Lodge that blends in with the Norwegian Landscape

Hunting-Lodge-Snohetta-1

The Hunting Lodge designed by Snohetta is a miniature hunting cabin that is fully integrated into the natural landscape. The lodge is beautifully situated, alone beside a lake in the untouched mountain areas close to Åkrafjorden in the western part of Norway.

The structure consists of two curved steel beams, connected with a continuous layer of hand cut logs of timber on top – a meeting between modern expression and traditional Norwegian mountain cabins.  The roof “grows out of” the landscape, covered with grass. The materials of the facades are local stone, tar treated wood and glass.
The beds along the walls works as seating in the evening – one furniture for the social, eating, and sleeping. A narrow zone by the entrance has equipment for cooking and storage.
