Aluminum Cabin in Vestfold, Norway

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Living

Architects are continuing to get more creative when it comes to building materials. We’ve seen just about everything one could think of, but when it comes to personal homes, this is the first time we’ve encountered an aluminum cabin.

Built by the architectural team at JVA, this cabin is constructed entirely from seawater resistant aluminum. Located right off the water in Vestfold, Norway, this 90 square meter cabin was designed to replace an old, worn-out cabin that was previously occupying the site. The new dwelling is comprised of three separate living spaces that all connect through three outdoor spaces. There’s even folding doors that open two of the rooms’ walls up entirely to the outside elements.
