Description: CaseStudio was asked to develop a prototype for a small cabin that would serve as a solitary hotel room put into the pristine landscape.
Part of the client’s real estate works as an ecological nature park where the visitors are allowed to experience the ‘natural’ nature without the traces from the industrial forestry. The cabin is put on the edge of a cliff where the visitor can relax and experience the beautiful and shifting landscape at the fjord.

The cabin is built up by modules of massive timber structure. The timber is produced and refined nearby, transported in modules and assembled on-site with a minimal impact on the surroundings. Technical installations are kept at a minimum, and with on-site solutions if possible, to ensure a minimized ecological footprint for the project.

The project awaits financing in order to produce five to ten different modules on different locations in the area.
