Small in size but designed to draw you closer to the rawness of the Western Norwegian coast, the Flokehyttene Cabins by Holon Arkitektur are a series of five cabins that straddle the rocky landscape of Sveio, about half an hour’s drive from Norway’s Haugesund city center.
Built for a local branch of the Norwegian Trekking Association, the guesthouses were designed to leave no permanent trace in nature. The cabins are anchored to the earth via steel columns drilled into rock, holding them aloft without any digging or levelling. Each of them adapt a similar triangular shape with flat cuts that help withstand the harsh winds and climate of the area.
Furnished minimally and equipped with a kitchen living room and toilets, four of the five cabins can welcome up to five people, while the largest one accommodates ten. A fireplace sits next to the long window seat – the best place to curl up against and savour the beautiful Norwegian landscape.
