This Minimalist Norse Wood Cabin Is Tucked Into The Forest Outside Oslo

If you ever want proof that minimalism and uniqueness can absolutely go hand-in-hand, just take a look at the works of renowned Scandinavian architect Casper Mork-Ulnes. Take, for instance, the beautiful geometries and exposed wood of the Mylla Hytte tucked into the hills outside of Oslo.

Designed as a retreat for a geologist and his family, this cabin project was heavily inspired and shaped by the surrounding landscape. For starters, the greater form is borrowed from the surrounding hills and the exposed wood reflects the pine forests all around. And while it seems a fairly simplistic, angular cabin at-a-glance, therein lies its brilliance, as a number of features are much more cleverly considered. For example, building regulations required the structure to have a gabled roof, but the architects incorporated that in a clever four shed roof pinwheel formation that looks great from any angle and also serves to create a pair of sheltered outdoor spaces protected from wind and snowfall. Even the view from each of the four wings captures a different vista — giving the whole project a feeling of being far larger than its 940 square-foot floorplan. The Mylla Hytte is a magnificent escape if there ever was one.
