Located on an island in Norway, this newly-built holiday resort is ideal for people seeking a peaceful vacation. Dubbed as Fordypningsrommet, it is designed by Norway-based firm TYIN Tegnestue Architects in collaboration with local architecture firm Rintala Eggertsson Architects and architecture students from NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology). The Arctic holiday resort consists of a series of tiny accommodations that are elevated from the ground on minimal posts to reduce the impact on the natural surroundings.
Each outdoor cabin is equally beautiful, but the cabin standing on the trunk of a chopped tree encased in a steel skeleton is really a thought-provoking accommodation. Its exteriors are clad in leftover materials from other buildings to cope up with the challenge of carrying construction materials to such a distant location. It sits on a single pillar and offers breathtaking views of the Norwegian Sea.
The design team has built pathways to encourage visitors to walk rather than driving to the location and a common fireplace to minimize the carbon footprint. The Arctic holiday retreat has four sleeping quarters, a kitchen, studio house, the deep thinking cabin, bathroom, and the hunter´s cave in the sauna across the Norwegian seashore. Founded by Norwegian composer and musician Håvard Lund in August, Fordypningsrommet resort has the capacity to accommodate up to 12 persons at a time.
There are separate cabins for sleeping, eating, and pondering, but every visitor has to share basic facilities. Once you are on the island, there will be no shops or crowd. In such a remote and serene place, there will be full freedom to dig out the best thoughts out of you mind. People planning for summer vacations can pick this place to experience the unspoiled coastal nature of the Scandinavian country.
