‘Herfell Cabin’ by Reiulf Ramstad Architects

‘Micro Cluster Cabins’ by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter /// Vestfold, Norway, 2014

The client wanted a cabin for the whole family, but at the same time it needed to be divisible in some way. The solution was a cluster of three structures, which can be used individually. Each of the buildings is defined as a clarified geometric volume, organized around the outdoor area that binds them together as one unit.

Toward the northeast, a hill borders and defines the site, together with the view in the opposite direction. The spatial interaction between landscape and the structure creates a beneficial microclimate. This is reflected by the structures’ southwest orientation, where the gable end is glazed. In the other directions, the buildings appear more closed.
