Compact mountain hut: winter bivouac high up on an Alpine mountain in the Kanin range
A tiny, narrow structure – a winter bivouac – defies extreme weather conditions in the high Alpine region of the Kanin Mountains. The min-cabin, located in rocky terrain 2,260 metres above sea level, serves as a simple means of shelter and refuge when the nearby mountain hut is closed. Designed by Ofis arhitekti and measuring a mere 2.40 metres wide and 4.90 metres long, it is capable of accommodating nine persons.

Our Favourites: Three small buildings in breathtaking landscapes
In close interaction with nature, a sauna in the middle of the Norwegian mountains, a mini hut in the Kanin massif and a mobile accommodation on the Beaulieu River near Southampton create intense experiences with nature.
Microarchitecture Meets Pure Nature: Sauna in Norway
Behind the intelligent wooden cube known as Eldmølla, a small sauna occupies 5 square metres. Conceptualized in the course of a teaching event hosted by NTNU, the sauna stands against the breathtaking scenery of Norway’s rough mountain world and offers a sauna experience that is close to nature.
