While metal is a common construction material, you rarely see it sheathing residential structures like it does the Aluminum Cabin. This cozy seaside abode is completely covered in highly reflective panels that complement the acute angles and abrupt edges of the contemporary structure. It is quite the sharp-looking shack.

Located in Vestfold, Norway, the JVA-designed dwelling sits nestled into the rocky shoreline and manages not to chop up the dramatic landscape. It mirrors the grasses, the shrubs, the mosses, the trees and the exposed bedrock, but also the expansive sunlit sky. The Aluminum Cabin is proof that cutting-edge architectural styles can actually do a great job of harmonizing with the natural world around them.
