Name: Cabin Dahl
Location: Risør, Norway
“The volumetric composition is dictated by the old structure and the slope of the site, together with a wish to create quiet nooks protected from the wind. The interior is finished with a polished concrete floor close to the granite in color and experiential quality. Walls are clad in oak. The zink clad exterior echoes the color of the granite site.”
I feel like Norwegians define their cabins a bit differently than we do in America. When I hear the word “cabin,” I think of Lincoln Logs and bear-necessity wooden design. This “cabin” is more like a modern day haven. The clad exterior and concrete floors reinterpret everything I thought I cabin would be. I like Jarmund/Vigsnæs’s definition of cabin.
