Admired recently: a collection of modern mountain cabins from the portfolio of Div.A Arkitekter in Oslo; in particular, the Mountain Lodge Skarsnuten in Hemsedal, Norway. The modest cabin is constructed primarily of timber and concrete and follows the contours of the hillside, sitting unobstrusively on the snowy landscape. Go to Div.A Arkitekter to see more images.
