Snøhetta Builds a Heavenly Cabin For Hikers in Oslo

Offering unbelievable views, Fuglemyrhytta is a pentagonal cabin that can sleep up to 10 lucky hikers.

A traditional gapahuk shelter and an outhouse are some of the amenities offered at Fuglemyrhytta.

An impactful panoramic window dominates Snøhetta’s Fuglemyrhytta, a self-catering hiking cabin perched on a hillside near the popular viewpoint  Vettakollen above Oslo. The Norwegian design firm has a tendency to put the focal point outside of its buildings—their underwater restaurant features a massive, horizontal window to welcome the ocean in—and Fuglemyrhytta is no exception.

Designed as a respite for groups of hikers trekking through the nearby Nordmarka Forest, the cabin is only accessible by foot.  Just outside is a traditional Norwegian “gapahuk” shelter for soaking up the elements on benches made from timber, as well as a small outhouse and a woodshed.
