Twisted Cabin by JVA

  • In the snowy and wooded area of Kvitjell, Norway is an unconventional house that rejects tempered lines in favor of the daringly oblique. Designed by Jarmund Visgnaes Architects aka JVA, Twisted Cabin honors form over program, but manages to incorporate the latter in a creative way that caters to the building’s unique bends and angles. The plan of Twisted Cabin places all kinds of geometric conditions, with the rare orthogonal walls that serve to reorient the in-house resident. Between the extreme shear of the roof and the occasionally sloped, wooden interior walls, the rooms include typical living spaces as well as a ski shed, sauna, and even a bubble bath. The multi-faceted boundaries isolate each room, transforming each individual space into its own perfect getaway.
