This mountain holiday home was especially envisioned by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter as a contemporary retreat for a family of four. Situated near the village Geilo, a popular skiing destination in Norway,┬áSplit View Mountain Lodge frames the spectacular views and allows easy access when it comes to skiing and hiking activities. According to the architects, the owners’ brief requested a home with four bedrooms, separate living and dining areas, a youth lounge and a mezzanine for the younger children. In addition, a small annex was also on the list of the clients for accommodating visiting friends and family.

The challenge was successfully met: “Our response was a cabin of clear and clean-cut expression with a continuous skin of timber cladding on the exterior walls and roof, which will acquire a grey patina with time. The volume consists of a main body, housing mostly bedrooms, which follow the natural contours of the landscape and splits into two living zones“, explained the architects. All interiors pay tribute to the modern-minimalist style, with wood being used in abundance for a welcoming feel. What are your thoughts on this Norwegian holiday ski lodge?
