This beautiful cabin is located on the slight slope of the site, surrounded by a cold snowy environment. The volume of the cabin can create small microclimate zones and also beneficial sun conditions. These conditions allow the family to have outdoor activities and also easy access from the cabin interior.

Walls, roofs, and floors are designed in the same wood materials. Some parts of the cabin walls are glazed walls, allowing the family to enjoy the view from inside the cabin. The kitchen, living, and dining room are placed in the same long area in the center of the cabin.
