Crafted from local timber using traditional techniques, the Troll's Peak Cabin takes inspiration from a classic row farm. The structure is comprised of four sections. Ranging from late medieval to a more modern dovetail notch, each one is constructed using a different method, resembling a line of individual buildings. On the southern end, a timber-framed garage clad in transparent polycarbonate provides an entrance for hikers and skiers from the outdoors, while also acting as a storage space for gear. This room leads through the rest of the house where low-lying windows bring in the surrounding wilderness. On arriving at the main living area, a sofa sits in front of a large picture window, framing in views of the Norwegian mountain valley.
