There is something compelling and captivating about modern architecture. While we’ve seen some pretty unique examples recently, today we get a look at something special. The Diamanten Cabin is an eye-catching, contrasting creation that sits alongside some ancient surroundings.
This timber-clad cabin is found in the mountains of Norway. The sharp design gets its name from the Norwegian word for diamond, sitting among traditional wooden buildings from the 19th-century. The retreat’s minimalist form extends from the area’s architecture, doing so with geometric angles throughout. The structure is mounted on a central pedestal in order to reduce disruption to the existing site.
The interior of the tiny structure features just a single, open room. However, the panels of glazing in the wall and ceiling provide stunning and unadulterated views of the stunning surroundings. The structure was designed as a retreat, and it looks to be a great location to escape the madness of reality. Kick back, relax and overlook the town of Oppdal below.
