It is virtually impossible to see the Bulhomen Cabin from afar thanks to its sedum-moss roof and treated facade. Completed as a green renovation project in 2008, the fan-shaped design by Oslo's Skaara Architekter continues to wow design aficionados in both Norway and beyond. Hit the jump for more details and flip through our gallery to see more images of this enviable waterside retreat.
The new Bulhomen cabin is split into two main structures that separate day and nighttime activities. Both the southernmost part, where the sleeping cabins are held, and the split-level eastern flank have amazing views of the adjacent bay. And there is definitely no shortage of natural light here.
In addition to providing insulation and capturing rainwater runoff, the sedum-moss roof works with the treated (and sustainably-sourced) pine façade to disguise the building so that it fits in harmoniously with the natural surroundings. Looks like a great spot for a summer break, doesn’t it?
