Located in a remote mountain range in western Norway, the Bjellandsbu hunting cabin by architecture and design firm Snøhetta skillfully blends into the surrounding landscape.

Made in part from locally sourced materials, this hunting cabin's curved shape is formed from two sloped steel beams decorated with a stone and timber facade. A grass covered roof helps to further blend this naturalistic structure into place.

Inside this 376 square foot hunting cabin a more modern and contemporary influence is at play. Inspired by Scandinavian design, the interior features a central fireplace surrounded by cushioned platforms functioning both as an area for sitting and for rest. With this careful planning, the hunting cabin is able to comfortably host up to 21 people. Windows on both sides of the building also allow not only for a spectacular view, but also let in natural light to brighten up the room.
