A Remote Island Resort By Stinessen Arkitektur

Words

Architecture studio Stinessen Arkitektur created the resort ‘Manshausen‘ located on a remote island in Steigen, Norway. To incorporate the cabins into their natural surroundings, the architects used natural materials for the exterior like larch wood. Their main feature is a floating glass facade that offers panoramic views of the sea. On the concept behind it, the architects say: “The cabins are designed to offer their guests shelter and comfort while at the same time underlining the dramatic experience of the elements outside; the sea, landscape, changing lights, weather and different seasons.”
