Norwegian National Tourist Route: Trollstigen

Wow. These photos make me miss Norway! Such a stunningly beautiful country.

Planned by Reiulf Ramstad Architects, the “Trollstigen” building in Romsdalen is a part of a popular tourist route that is only accessible at Summer time.

This space is virtually a visitor’s center, and RRA describes the program as the architecture being “characterised by clear and precise transitions between planned zones and the natural landscape.” All of the materials from the glazing to the stone and metal were planned with the harsh weather conditions in mind.

N55 walking house walks along the harbor in Copenhagen, Denmark

Created for a “peaceful nomadic life” N55 Design put together the concept of this completely mobile and unrestrained home. The entrance isn’t much– especially compared to any standard house of today, where entries are a coveted piece of the home. Instead, you are plopped right in to the multi-functional space with a loft style bed and a wood burning looking ‘stove.’

The project is from 2010.
Music from “Air Cushion” by Anders Remmer.
