Named the Norwegian word for diamond, the Diamanten Cabin is a sharp contrast to its ancient surroundings. The timber-clad retreat is perched in the mountains of Norway among a collection of traditional wooden buildings from the 19th-century. Its sleek, minimalist form branches out from the vernacular architecture with a geometric angles. To reduce disruption to the existing site, the structure is mounted on a central pedestal. Internally, the tiny house feature a single, open room while panels of glazing in the wall and ceiling overlook the town of Oppdal below.
