JVA Architects designed the small Cabin Nordmarka wooden house in Nordmarka, Norway. The cabin is mainly used during wintertime, as a basis for cross-country skiing in the nearby forests. The use of materials and colours reflect the traditions of housing in the area: a black stained wooden shell with a light all wooden interior.
The relation between smaller private spaces and common space within the building has been carefully considered both in terms of scale and views.
Embracing the dining area on the first floor are (clockwise) master bedroom, seating area, kitchen, storage for supplies and ski equipment, hallway, children’s bedrooms, bathroom and master bedroom.
The timber construction is clad with wooden panels both inside and outside.The roof is covered with wooden panels above a normal membrane. – Photography by Nils Petter Dale
