The Aluminum Cabin by Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL


Architecture studio Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL had an inspiring task to create a cabin on a dreamy location in Norway‘s Vestfold. Located on a rocky shore the 90 square meter cabin is making the best of its location, both with its interior and exterior. The breathtaking outdoors is connected with the indoor space through large windows, while the aluminium clad facade reflects the surrounding.

Situated in a beautiful archipelago, this seaside cabin is a replacement project for a worn-out, unpractical cabin which was dominating the site. The area’s building code and its following obstructions have formed the project in size and form, as well as an enhanced site-specific adaption to the landscape.v The cabin consists of three interconnected volumes where three outdoor spaces is created. All three outdoor rooms give several sun and shelter options during the day. The cabin is placed between two rocks and the characteristic landscape makes the cabin appear low in the terrain. The plan is programmatically divided in two by the roof ridge. One side is subdivided into bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen – while the other side is one large living room. The division is to be seen in the opposing facades – one is private and enclosed, the other is open and transparent. The cabin is clad in seawater resistant aluminum and has folding doors that make two of the facades completely open towards the surroundings. The aluminum façade plays along with the shifting daylight and appears altered in its expression during the day.
