Cabin Holdeskaret

Location: Holdeskaret, Hemsedal
Size: 150 m2
Status: Completed 2010

The cabin is situated right at the tree-line of the mountains, overlooking the sweeping vistas in all directions.

The building climbs a north-eastward facing ridge in this vast mountain landscape, and follows the shape of the terrain, considering the climatic conditions of this particular spot.

The windows are carefully positioned to frame specific scenery.

Sedum plants cover the large slanting roof and picks up the blend of colours of the surroundings.

Exterior walls are part tar stained wood and part concrete.
Constructive elements are concrete, laminated wood and steel.
