Description Change this

Situated in a freshly cut clearing in a deep forest the cabin doesn’t really relate to its present local piece of ground, but rather towards the soft hills and lakes towards the low winter-sun of the southern horizon.

The cabin is lifted from the ground, and except from the opening of the north/south -axis, walls and roof are reckoned as equal covering elements, almost like a hollowed piece of timber.

The cabin is mainly used during wintertime, as a basis for cross-country skiing in the nearby forests.
