At about 1100 meters above sea level, with a fantastic view from east to west, the site was scenic, but challenging. Rough weather conditions, with winds reaching hurricane level and snow depths of a potential five meters, were crucial premises for the design. The cabin is shaped to pro­tect against the cli­mate, with the en­trance and out­door space shielded from the wind in two di­rec­tions. The L-shaped build­ing fol­lows the con­tours of the slope and the bed­rooms are stepped ac­cord­ing to the ter­rain. The tec­tonic lan­guage is dic­tated by the zon­ing and or­ga­niz­ing of the in­te­rior func­tions – the bed­rooms and liv­ing space are clad in wood while the en­trances, bath­rooms and stor­age rooms are clad with lo­cal stone. The ex­ter­nal wooden cladding is made from un­treated Nor­we­gian pine with high oil con­tent for nat­ural pro­tec­tion.
