There’s not much out there that could make us leave our lives in the city, but sometimes all the hustle and bustle can be a bit overwhelming. It’s at these times, we like to fantasize about shacking up far from civilization, surrounded only by nature, in a place like the Efjord Retreat Cabin By Stinessen Arkitektur.
As it turns out, the man that commissioned this cabin was searching exactly for that: total isolation and privacy. Of course, getting away from people was just one part of the equation. The other was creating an abode that embraced the natural beauty of its locale, the Halvarøy island off the coast of Norway. The geometric, panoramic design is complemented by natural materials, like birch wood and granite stone, and the abode even features its own sauna — which looks out over the gorgeous landscape with floor-to-ceiling windows of its own. We know this guy probably isn’t looking for neighbors, but we’re itching to have a cabin like this built for ourselves.
