Dagsturhytter, the Norwegian refuge built like a puzzle

Dagsturhytter | Collater.al

The project of the Dagsturhytte was born from the collaboration of several entities: the Norwegian association of trekking, the studio SPINN arkitekter and the engineers of FORMAT, and from the desire to stimulate tourism in the Norwegian area of Hammerfest, the northernmost city in the world.

The project involved the construction of two cabins, two shelters that, in addition to being designed and totally in harmony with the surrounding unspoiled landscape, was the perfect place to rest after a long walk. The aesthetics of the mountain huts are inspired by the shapes and beauty of nature and fit perfectly into the ground as if they were giant stones. The shape and materials used are designed to confuse the structure in the landscape and produce the least visual pollution possible. 

From an architectural point of view, the two shelters are a real gem. The project was carried out by SPINN arkitekter, the parts of the structure were then produced by FORMAT engineers and finally, the 77 wooden panels were assembled as if they were real pieces of a puzzle. Sitting inside you can enjoy a warm and comfortable place to have your own packed lunch, rest and converse and admire the landscape visible from the large window overlooking the fjords.
