While Cabin Ryfylke is blessed with a lush landscape and seaside views, the home’s remote location lacks vehicular access to the mainland. All of the building materials had to be transported by boat to the island. The 120-square-meter building comprises three wings arranged in a kinked shape to overlook south-facing views of the fjord, while framing and protecting an outdoor space from the elements.

In contrast to the weather-resistant diamond-shaped Norwegian slate stone shingles, honey-colored ash dominates the interior surfaces. A concrete structure with an in-built wood-burning stove serves as the centerpiece of the living room. The polished concrete floors are outfitted with a radiant floor heating system.

“The client wanted maximum utilization of the permissible built-up area, and had specific requirements as for how many people would be able to stay at the cabin simultaneously,” wrote the architects. “In order to meet these wishes the amount of areas only used for movement is reduced to a minimum, while the entire upper level has a height that makes these areas not included in the total square footage.” The communal areas, including the living room, dining room, and galley kitchen, are located on one end of the cabin, while the three bedrooms and two bathrooms are placed on the opposite end.
