Cabin Norderhov is an eco-friendly retreat that overlooks Lake Steinsfjorden. The cabin’s exterior walls and roof are clad in overlapping stone plates that mimic the look of traditional wood paneling found in Western Norway.
Norwegian artist and builder John Roger Holte helped create Boxhome, a small prototype cabin built for one. The contrasting colors of birch, aspen, red oak, and other woods create a warm environment, pictured in these Japanese-style dining room.
Cabin Nordmarka, designed by Jarmund/Vigsnæs, was built to sustain Nordic winters. The home features wooden panels throughout, from its dark exterior to the light pine panels that cover the interior.
This 376-square-foot prefab cabin is the perfect rustic retreat: due to lack of interior space, its only bathing area is an outdoor shower that allows its residents to commune with nature.
The land this house was built on in Hanko, Norway was a family property passed down to one of the homeowners in 1970. She and her husband built their pine summer vacation home here, and years later upgraded it with modern amenities.
