At this point in the year, most of us are well past our wits’ end regarding the current state of affairs. From a pandemic that just can’t quit to a presidential debate fit for the playground, there’s ample cause to take an extensive news hiatus. And there’s no better place to enjoy such a respite than in a remote mountaintop stay. Free from distractions and surrounded by gorgeous vistas, the aptly-named ‘Diamenten’ cabin by A38 Architects fits the bill perfectly.
Designed for maximum modern expression with minimal environmental impact, the Diamanten cabin rests atop a single pillar in the mountains above Oppdal, Norway. By using such a simple foundation, A38 managed to build the project while leaving the surrounding terrain virtually untouched. And with its massive windows making up the forward-facing wall and roof, there’s plenty of opportunity to take in the view from the valley or from the sky above. Inside, the cabin features simple furnishings, with only a cozy bed and some tasteful prints making up the accouterments. But with a backdrop made up of 18th-century Norwegian buildings and some steep snowy hills, we doubt you’ll be able to tear yourself away from the window.
