scandinavian mountain cabin

The cosy mountain cabin is a modern take of a traditional barn of the region in Härjedalen, Sweden. The cabin consists of prefabricated wooden units. It was originally designed in 2005 by architect Peter Sahlin for his own family, as a vacation retreat in the fells of Härjedalen. Five houses have since then been produced in the region.

The interior is modern and white. Warmth is added with wooden plywood walls and ceilings. The cabin is not very large (between 85 – 100m2) but it has full amenities including kitchen, bathroom, a sauna, two bedrooms and a loft with a third bedroom. Ecological and rational concerns have been important when choosing materials and construction methods – the lodge is very energy efficient and is built with sustainable and natural materials.

  2. Ooooh. That snow drift photo was a cruel reminder of what’s around the corner… But who cares when it can be that fab indoors? By the way, the Swedes nicked Härjedalen from us Norwegians some 360 years ago… 😉

  3. love everything! i can just imagine a cold winter weekend there 🙂

  4. I hope to build a smaller version of this out in the Pacific NW next year. Thanks for showing all the possibilities!
