Impressive project style of Split View Mountain Lodge at Havsdalen, Buskerud, comes from the drawing board of Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter, who share with us their project. According to them: This holiday house has a clear and clean-cut expression. The volume has a major wing, housing primarily bedrooms, which naturally adapts to the terrain and divides into two branches of living zones.
From the Architects:
The vacation house is located close to the village Geilo, a well-liked skiing destination in the valley Hallingdal. Ski resorts are abundant about the lodge, with a freestyle terrain park appropriate next to the website. Out of winter season, the mountains supply superb hiking opportunities as effectively as other sporting activities. The loved ones of 4 with anticipation of a fifth addition supplied a straight-forward system for their mountain lodge: 4 bedrooms, separate living and dining places, a youth lounge and a mezzanine for the younger youngsters. In addition a little annex would accommodate guests and going to grandparents.
Our response was a cabin of clear and clean-reduce expression with a continuous skin of timber cladding on the exterior walls and roof, which will obtain a grey patina with time. The volume consists of a principal physique, housing mostly bedrooms, which comply with the all-natural contours of the landscape and splits into two living zones. This shift in program and use of a number of levels allows the creating to adapt to the slope of the web site. The separate volume of the annex is placed in extension of the principal body, contributing to the 3 characteristic split views by means of completely glazed finish walls.
The cabin is entered beneath the cantilevered glazed volume into a hall with polished in-situ concrete floor, functioning as an intermediate zone to remove ski boots and outdoor clothing. A wooden stair ascends from the low basement and opens onto the generous space of the living quarters, capped by a complicated ceiling of pitched planes high above. At the core of the vacation property, exactly where the separate wings branch off from the major body in strategy, is the kitchen. Its countertop of glass fiber reinforced concrete is cantilevered into the center of the space and anchored by a two-sided fireplace at the other end. Steps go onto separate spaces for dining and relaxing by the suspended second fireplace.
The extruded kind of the structure frames the spectacular views from inside the cabin, even though strategically positioned smaller sized openings along its volume supplies glimpses of the instant surroundings. The elevated levels of the living and dining places supply its occupants with a high degree of privacy, additional enjoyed by ample seating niches within the outer walls. The interior floor, walls and ceiling are homogenously lined with practically knot-cost-free joinery timber, even though all opening frames are concealed or discrete. The interest to detail and higher high quality is complete and coherent all through the project.
By means of sliding doors along the hallway of the narrow major physique is each and every of the bedrooms as well as a bathroom with sauna. The master bedroom opens onto a gable-shaped window extruded via the side wall for an outlook onto the night sky, although every single of the children’s bedrooms has a loft bunk bed for going to friends. At the far end of the hall is the youth lounge and overhead mezzanine with views via the glazed gable end straight onto the ski slope.
The mountain lodge is a continuation of Norwegian developing traditions in type and materiality, perched beautifully inside its landscape and responding to its context.
