Situated at 1,100 metres above sea level, the Moldegård cabin has been designed to withstand some of the harshest weather conditions in the world - including gale force winds and snow depths of up to five metres. Inside, it provides a cozy and comfortable refuge from the wild elements. 

The architects designed an L-shaped construction that would shield the entrance and patio from the weather, with an exterior that sweeps down into the landscape, making for a natural, unobtrusive facade.

The exterior is covered in untreated pine heartwood that has a high level of natural oils while the interior features a combination of timber and local stone.

The large glass windows allow sunlight to flood in - particularly important during the dark winter months. They also allow the feeling of bringing the surrounding habitat into the home, while maintaining a cosy, warm environment.
