As you probably know by now, we are quite fascinated with outstanding modern architecture. Today we get a look at a prime example and a stunning place to break away from reality. The Tungestolen Hiking Cabin is situated on a plateau in Norway, where a cluster of cabins provides a modern shelter in a rural location. Snøhetta designed the project as a shelter for visiting hikers.
The cabins were commissioned by Luster Turlag after cyclone Dagmar destroyed the original structure. The cabins feature pentagonal designs that are constructed from wooden glue-lam frames. The exterior is covered in sheets of CLT while clad in ore pine. The main cabin is host to a communal space for dining and socializing. The remainder of the buildings offer accommodations for up to 50 guests.
The cabins are also host to angular-shaped glazing, which frames in views of the surrounding landscape. Beautiful, unique, modern, and eye-catching, the cabin is undoubtedly something outstanding and worth your attention.
Take a closer look at these modern structures and find out more about the design from Snøhetta. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more modern architecture and outstanding design coming soon.
