The resort off the coast in Northern Norway is situated in an impressive natural scenery, which inspired the conceptual design of the cabins to provide a welcome shelter from the harsh climate, while the cantilevered glass structure gives a feeling of floating on the sea. A naked, but respectful, exposure to the natural elements on the outside. With time and weathering the wood will turn silver grey, like the natural colors of the landscape around. The cabins where carefully placed to provide individual privacy while leaving the existing landscape untouched.
