Project Description

The general idea is to establish a Cabin-concept that favours a nice landscape setting with the need of appreciating a wonderful view. Two volumes containing bedrooms and service-area are composed in order to obtain the living and dining room space as glazed pavilion in-between giving contact to the nature in all directions.

The pavilion concept is emphasized by the large roof that is as well giving shelter for the terrace during rainy days. The large roof has simultaneously the purpose of giving the impression that the Cabins space is bigger experienced from the inside. The terrace and the roof make a unity and extend the space with the glazed facade and the sliding doors. The lower sleeping unit is released from the roof by glazed transition between the volume and the roof, emphasized by LED-lighting in the transition.

This Cabin is designed with possibilities of establishing roof terrace as well.
