Situated in the powerful mountain landscape by the foot of the peak Gaustatoppen, the cabin is interacting with its surrounding nature.  The cabin's concept is based on three main ideas:

The elongated part of the cabin, lying parallel to the landscape lines,  is inspired by the traditional norwegian building type, the 'longhouse'.

An elevated and rotated part at the north-west end of the cabin is framing the view towards Gaustatoppen. 

In the opposit end of the longhouse,  the continuation of the roof defines the drive-in and ski-in/ski-out feature.
