Architects: Snorre Stinessen
Year: 2015
Area: Unknown
Location: Mannshausen, Lille Manshausen, 8283, Norge

These glass and timber holiday cabins by Norwegian architect Snorre Stinessen overhang the coastline of Norway's Manshausen Island, providing a base for Arctic Circle explorers.

The four cabins sit on the edge of the 22-hectare island, which is part of the Steigen archipelago in northern Norway. Three of the four cabins cantilever over the stone quays that formed moorings for fishing boats, while the fourth is set at an angle to the coastline on a rocky shelf. The huts feature one glazed end that projects out towards the sea, while timber-clad ends faces toward land.
