Mylla Hytte

By massing four volumes with shed roofs in a cross, this 84-square-metre, three-bedroom/three-bathroom ski cabin in Norway, an hour north of Oslo, achieves the footprint and angles of a pinwheel. The unique design was Casper Mork-Ulnes’s response to the municipality’s unwavering insistence on a gabled roof. Inside, the pine-plywood-clad interior is as practical as it is lovely; it features custom furniture, ample storage and dramatic cathedral ceilings that show off the different facets of the structure’s intersecting rooflines. The cabin’s unconventional shape and position – atop a concrete slab on a grade – also creates sheltered morning and evening porches.
