This Timber & Steel Cabin Sits On Its Own Isolated Island In Norway

After a Herculean storm washed away an old warehouse in 1992, a new structure was erected in its place. The Straume Weekend House by Knut Hjeltnes is a beautiful escape that sits on an island called Sildholmen located off the coast of Remøya in Norway.

Constructed off-site using seven steel frames, four wooden boxes, and wooden shutters, the retreat is a sturdy structure. It’s also wrapped in timber wood for a warm, inviting aesthetic, complementing the natural elements surrounding it. When not in use, you can retract the sliding shutters to protect all the doors and windows, so it can survive harsh weather. Inside, you’ll find a floating staircase, an elegant fireplace, a mini-theater, and large windows to invite the sunlight in. The Straume Weekend House earned plenty of recognition from the architecture community, including a nomination for the Norwegian Steel Construction Award and shortlist entry for the European Mies Van Der Rohe Award in 2017.
