Inviting Holiday Retreat in Norway: Twisted House by JVA

Either on a sunny weather or on wintertime, when snow is everywhere, Twisted House is a beautiful and warm cabin getaway perfect for a large family on holiday. Nestled high in mountains of Norway, to 1000m above the ocean and very close to the ski slopes, the property takes full advantage of all peacefulness the surrounding landscape offers, ensuring comfortable and relaxing days. Finished in 2011 by Norwegian architecture studio JVA, the 3900 sq. ft cabin displays a clean, larch wood-cladded architecture style which  makes it very much part of the surroundings.

Architects designed it on seven floor levels, being connected differently, but harmoniously to the sloping terrain. Inside, the Twisted House impresses by its spacious wooden interiors which compliment the exterior design. Almost everything in the house’s interior design from floors, to walls, stairs, ceiling and table is made of oak wood to give a warm feeling especially in the wintertime.
