This ski cabin for a family of four is Mork Ulnes Architect’s second project in Kvitfjell, Norway.
With the ambition to accommodate three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spacious living area, and a two- car carport on a site with relatively little flat area, the siting of the building’s mass becomes the design driver. To make it nimble and adaptable to the site, the cabin’s mass was broken into two, slim, gabled volumes. These two volumes are angled to perch along the contours of the site’s slope and step down with the grade.
The interplay of the volumes also allows maximum access to natural light throughout the plan and invites to bleed into the spaces between the two building wings, creating a continuous indoor- outdoor connection throughout the house.
