Norway has always had a certain allure for me; it’s the land where the Northern Lights dance across the sky, where the Troll Tunga appears to be a genuine relic from a bygone era, and where this isolated cabin would be ideal. The world is hopeful that the outbreak will be over now that the United States has declared it safe for residents who have been fully vaccinated to go out without masks.
The White House is an excellent example of a remote cabin in which I could reflect on all of the changes that have occurred in the last year. Milad, the designer, envisions this cabin in Arendal, Norway, and draws inspiration from the sea and the cabin in which it is nestled.The design starts with a horizontal line parallel to the sea and evolves into a traditional A-frame cabin as the mountains do. The clean lines and stark white colour of the cabin contrast sharply with the surrounding mountains.The house is entered via a bridge, and the walk almost becomes a metaphorical journey, disconnecting the user from his problems and allowing them to interact with their surroundings with each new perspective they see.
While a concept, the design extends beyond functionality, beginning and ending with the sea. We’d like to see more of the design’s details and interiors, as well as the view from the cabin, which we’re sure will be spectacular. While A-frame cabins are fairly common in architecture, this modern, minimalist version appears to be a futuristic version that we all adore!
