Cabin Vindheim by Vardehaugen

Cabin Vindheim is a 55-square-metre compact floor plan house situated deep into the forest, near the Norwegian town of Lillehammer. Designed by Architectural studio Vardehaugen in 2016 the Norway cabin was conceived as a surprise, to be discovered by passers-by while hiking.

The cabin is inspired by the classic motif of snowbound cabins. When snow covers the structure the division between architecture and nature becomes blurred, and the roof becomes a man-made slope for ski jumping, toboggan runs and other snow-based activities.

In spite of a compact floor plan (55m2) the cabin is spatially rich and generous due to the sloping roof and the various uplifts. From the main bedroom and the mezzanine you can even gaze up at the stars and enjoy the northern light, while lying in bed. When resting in the cabin’s bedroom, a large 4m-long window creates the impression of sleeping above the treetops and underneath the stars.
