The revered architects at Snøhetta are continually devising picturesque dwellings, bringing an illustrative view of Norway’s sometimes lush, sometimes desolate landscapes, climates, and environments into the world spotlight. While the company’s work has expanded well beyond the beautiful fjords of its motherland, the Fuglemyrhytta Cabin sits calmly atop a hill just north of Oslo — reminding us, once again, of the north’s immense beauty.

Fuglemyrhytta was created as a self-service cabin to assist hikers and adventurers as they trek through Vettakollen, providing elaborate views and panoramic sightlines of the country’s Oslofjord. Serving primarily as a holiday home, the dwelling acts as a year-round retreat for families, friends, and students looking to retreat from the quandaries of daily life. Dual pentagonal structures make up the primary facade of timber abode, giving way staggered architecture that separates the cabin’s many rooms. As with most northern designs, an angular roof allows for the quick egress of heavy snowfall. Spacious rooms dressed in contemporary furniture and a large, south-facing window area provide a cozy retreat for Norway’s intrepid explorers.
