PAN-tretopphytter: Reinventing Cabin Rentals in Åsnes

Dive into the serene beauty of Norway with PAN-tretopphytter, a selection of captivating rental cabins nestled amid the lush Finlandian-forests of Åsnes, Innlandet. Designed by renowned Sivilarkitekt Espen Surnevik in 2019, these retreats flawlessly blend modern design and traditional materials, harmoniously merging with the surrounding nature. Here, luxury meets tranquility in a seamless fusion of style and substance.

The new 185-square-metre home, which is occupied by a young family of four, has linear massing and a gabled titanium-zinc roof, emulating the shape of traditional agricultural buildings that dot the rural outskirts of Bratislava.

It also has a smooth, white-painted facade and aluminium-framed windows.

However, the studio didn’t completely do away with the bricks that formed the structure of the old house – they instead have been used to line House V’s interiors.
