Oslo-based architectural practice Gudmundur Jonsson Architect have designed the Modern Cabin GJ-9 project. The contemporary property is made from stone and wood and can be found in Bjergøy, Norway.

According to the architects: “The contemporary property is designed for adaption to multiple settings not taking any particular site into consideration, being a product for mass-production distribution.

“The general idea was to establish a cabin concept that favours a nice landscape setting with the need to appreciating a wonderful view. Two volumes containing bedrooms and service-area are composed in order to obtain the living and dining room space as glazed pavilion in between giving contact to the nature in all directions.

“The pavilion concept is emphasised by the large roof that is as well giving shelter for the terrace during rainy days. The large roof has simultaneously the purpose of giving the impression that the cabins space is bigger experienced from the inside. The terrace and the roof make a unity and extend the space with the glazed facade and the sliding doors. The lower sleeping unit is released from the roof by glazed transition between the volume and the roof, emphasized by LED-lighting in the transition.

“The cabins interior design has been done with the possibility of establishing a roof terrace as well.”
