The Hooded Cabin by Arkitektværelset AS is an architectural feat that looks as if it has stumbled out of the pages of a fantastical world. The home sits just outside of the avalanche danger zone on a weathered mountain top that features a view of a picturesque lake. For all of its expansive views, the Hooded Cabin is actually designed with seclusion and privacy in mind. Its wooden paneling with a gabled roof quite literally looks like the hood of a jacket that has been pulled down snuggly to meet a pair of beautiful eyes (or in this case windows overlooking a natural Norwegian lake).
Divided corner windows coupled with large sliding doors invite the natural elements to become a part of the kitchen and living room. Oak flooring and paneling warmly reflect the natural light and make guests feel as if they are both a part of nature and serenely observing it. The rooms in the open attic offer an additional sleeping space for eight people, while the master bedroom, bathroom, and sauna provide the luxurious touches that a high-end mountain cabin needs to feel like a home away from home.
