New Tungestolen Tourist Cabin By Snohetta

Jan 9, 2019

Category: Living

Norway is an illustrious land, brimming with green mountainous regions and ice covered scapes — an awe-inspiring presentation of grandeur that shifts with the seasons. Amongst the country’s beauteous ecosystem, an unassuming plateau located in the municipality of Luster has presented itself for Snohetta’s upcoming project, the New Tungestolen Tourist Cabin.

The tourist cabin isn’t actually a cabin, at least in the traditional sense — rather, the aforementioned style takes shape through a series of large colonial dwellings, resemblant of the country’s lush mountain-borne heritage. The primary courtyard is comprised of three freestanding structures — angular wood buildings that serve to frame the location’s common area and give form to an introverted social space, while other, more dispersed buildings outline the radius of the property. An intricate spiral of landscaped paths, trails used by livestock, and varying changes in elevation help to create an intimate feel for the tourist cabin, providing occupants with a harmonious connection to the surrounding elements before settling into their comfortable dwelling.
