By adding a large floor-to-ceiling glass window in the living area towards the south and the east the kitchen sitting zone and dining space now enjoy unabated view of the hypnotic scenery outside. Even the loft style bedroom gets a long window of its own that allows guests to take in the sights and sounds of Eidsvåg even as they soak in its comfort.
Dark exterior of the house stands in contrast to the light cheerful and modern interior with the ground floor housing the living kitchen and dining in one wing and a family room study additional bedroom and other utility space in the other.
Bringing contemporary comfort to a land that still seems untouched by modern razzmatazz the gorgeous cabin’s new interior is filled with a flood of natural light along with energizing pops of red.
As kids we all loved treehouses. They were the exciting little escape into a fantasy world where we could play high above the ground and plot our adventures. As adults some of that adventurous spirit still lies within us but now it’s mixed with a dream of a luxurious home and a peaceful getaway.
A set of moving panels and a spacious shelf become the focal point of the family room with the panels sliding in and out of place to hide TV storage spaces and other compartments when not in use. A comfy daybed in green next to the window provides even more storage space with a slim work desk next to it becoming the study zone.
Offering just that but with a hint of originality and contemporary gray panache is the in designed by Steffen Welsch Architects. Inspired by Austrian architect Hermann Czech’s philosophy that sees ‘Architecture as background’ rather than an entity that stands out visually the new family home is all about understated elegance.
Wood cabins sure have a similar design but each and every one of them is unique in its own way. This spacious cabin is perfect for people who don’t want to give up the comfort of a big home while enjoying the beauty of mother nature. The log cabin experience is made even better with a big deck where warm evenings can be spent in the company of good people. The rustic pieces truly merge with the natural surroundings and create an incredibly old-fashioned setting.
