Aurora Lodge: Concrete Retreat in Norway’s Remote Wilderness
Tucked away in the remote Lyngen Alps in Norway lies Aurora Lodge – a modern retreat designed by Stinessen Arkitektur in 2021.
With respect for and close connection to nature, the design of this project endeavors to complement the site, with the main building stretching out across the natural plateau and high ceilings and seamless glass walls inviting the sky and landscape into the building. Its outer cladding is made from Nordic Green copper and the inside is clad in silver-fir, with a hard brushed surface, softening the feel of the high ceilings. Along the path to the main house, a separate annex/suite follows the same design approach, and across the creek, the sauna sits as a separate building with its interior all focused on the view towards the sea.
