On the Kvitfjell in Norway lies the cozy Kvitfjell hut, which extends over 26 meters and offers more views of the neighboring mountain peaks and the horizon. Kvitfjell (Norwegian for “White Mountain”) is a ski resort that was established for the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, making it an ideal place for a family vacation. The mountain hut designed by Erling Berg is made from local pine wood. The exterior and roof are left untreated so that natural age turns gray over time.
Vertical wooden slats are placed randomly to make the unfinished exterior walls of the cabin more visually interesting.
The interior is wrapped in white oiled pine, which helps keep the rooms bright during the long winters. There is a large window at the end of the living room as well as a smaller horizontal window on the side that frames the picturesque surroundings.
The furnishings are kept to a minimum, mostly wood, with the exception of a few soft colors.
The wood-paneled walls extend to the kitchen cabinets, keeping the look clean and minimal.
