archatlas: Cabin Vindheim Vardehaugen AS Cabin Vindheim is situated deep into the forest, in the alpine landscape close to Lillehammer / Norway. The cabin is inspired by the classic image of a snowbound cabin with only the roof exposed above the snow. By extending the gables all the way down to the ground, the cabin becomes part of the snowy landscape. In spite of a compact floor plan (55m2) the cabin is spatially rich and generous due to the sloping roof and the various uplifts. From the main bedroom and the mezzanine you can even gaze up at the stars and enjoy the northern light, while lying in bed. During winter you can easily walk on top of the cabin and even sledge ride or ski down the sloping roof. Images and text via
