Manshausen Island Resort, Norway

Manshausen Island is situated in the Steigen Archipelago off the coast of Northern Norway. The Island´s position between dramatic mountains and the Barents Sea is in itself the inspiration for celebrated Polar Explorer Børge Ousland´s newest adventure; an adventure and exploration resort.

The shelter design endeavours to make a minimum environmental impact with the use of massive-wood construction and the construction was planned taking into account the logistical restrictions of building on a remote island and the weather conditions dictating a limited period for construction works. The massive-wood construction is made in two layers, with the outer layer in larch which in time will turn naturally silver gray. The glazing is custom made for the project and the large glasses are glued to the outside of the construction to ensure a smooth surface towards the winds (that may be severe at times) and to allow for unobstructed views of the nature and the elements outside. All details, also in the interior, are carefully planned and custom made for the project, but always with attention to the main conseptual idea.
