Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk, Mountain Cottage, Norway, stilts, pinewood, local wood, architecture, stilts

Located in Stor-Elvdal, Norway, this beautiful Mountain Cottage stands 900 meters above sea level. Embracing the sloping landscape, the L-shaped shelter stands on a small concrete sustaining wall and several stilts, causing minimal impact to the ground. The interior spaces are bright and filled with natural light thanks to massive windows that frame beautiful views of the surrounding environment.

The cabin is mainly constructed from local pinewood, and the ceiling is made of plywood rectangles that were painted in 19 different colors. All exterior wood was minimally treated, exposing the wood’s natural beauty.
