Cabin Holdeskaret

Location: Hemsedal, Norway

Design: Lund Hagem Architects

Winter Cabin

Cabin Holdeskaret is a private winter retreat located in the mountainous district of Hemsedal. The cabin is situated right at the tree-line of the mountains, overlooking sweeping vistas in all directions. The cabin is designed as a response to the local harsh climatic conditions as well as the topography.

Winter Cabin

The building climbs a north-east facing ridge and the sloping roof follows the natural terrain of the site, unifying the building and the landscape.

Winter Cabin

The roof is covered with sedum and stretches out over the carport situated at the lowest end of the cabin. The base is constructed with local stone providing a plinth on which the timber building rests.

Winter Cabin

The black stained wood cladding and concrete façade are carefully chosen to blend in with the natural color of the surroundings.

Winter Cabin

The central staircase follows the slope of the site from the entrance on the lower level passing the bedrooms and the living room, culminating in the kitchen and dining on the upper level. The windows along the facades are carefully placed to further enhance this movement as well as framing specific surrounding sceneries.

Winter Cabin

The interior walls are clad with dark stained aspen panels matching the colour of the exterior walls. The floor is industrial grade oak parquet, treated with iron vitriol and oil.

Winter Cabin

The fireplace forms the central element of the cabin’s main social area. It opens towards the kitchen dining area as well as the living room and it negotiates the levels of the two rooms. The fireplace is constructed with concrete and bricks.
