Cabin Kvitfjell: A Stunning Mountain Getaway in Norway
Cabin Kvitfjell is a stunning mountain house designed by Aksetøy Arkitektur located in Fåvang, Norway.
Situated at the foot of the mountain range and just next to Kvitfjell ski resort, this 30 meter-long (98 feet) structure with pitched roof combines dark timber cladding with Norwegian Oppdal slates for an elegant mountain design style.
Inside the house, large windows and sliding doors offer maximum scenic view while wooden interiors with a hint of metal and fabric create a comforting atmosphere. Dedicated rooms for skiing preparation and equipment storage provide direct access to the nearby slopes. The cabin also features terraces, verandas and excellent hiking opportunities all year round.
About Cabin Kvitfjell
Cabin Kvitfjell is located in Fåvang, Ringebu Municipality, adjacent to the renowned Kvitfjell ski resort (50 km north of Lillehammer). This 30-meter-long structure with a pitched roof rests atop a masonry plinth inserted into the landscape to offer stunning views of the mountains. The exterior has been clad in dark brown timber and Oppdal slates from Norway’s new national museum in Oslo, creating a subtle blend with the other holiday homes nearby.
Materiality on the Facade Reflects Interior Layout
The timber-clad upper part of the cabin houses primary living spaces such as the living room and kitchen. Large windows, sliding doors and wooden interiors with metal and fabric accents provide scenic views and cozy comfort. The masonry plinth offers security and privacy for secondary programs like storage and bedrooms. Aluminum separations and two different cladding orientations further emphasize each floor’s hierarchy through the facade.
A Transition Between Home Comfort & Outdoor Adventure
Cabin Kvitfjell offers more than just shelter; its spaces and circulations link indoor with outdoor areas perfectly. Dedicated rooms are available for skiing preparation while terraces, verandas and excellent hiking opportunities provide leisure activities during all seasons.
