placed on top of a slight slope in central norway, this timber cabin has been designed to provide comfortable living accommodation for a family of five throughout the region’s different seasons. completed by reiulf ramstad architects, ‘V-lodge’ takes its name from the dwelling’s floor plan, with the property divided into two wings connected at a 45 degree angle.

 

one branch contains the kitchen and dining room, while the other is a staggered series of more intimate rooms embedded into the sloping terrain. adjoining the residence, small external micro-climates are created with beneficial sun conditions for outdoor activities and easy access from the home’s interior.
