Manshausen Island

imageimageimageThere are so many smart solutions made in the cabins. Like this kitchen eating area. A pull down table and a box with storage inside, on wheels of course.imageimageManshausen Island, what a beautiful tranquil place. Situated in the Steigen archipelago off the coast of Northern Norway. The Island´s position between mountains and the Barents Sea is in itself the inspiration for Polar Explorer Børge Ousland´s newest project. He has built an adventure and exploration resort, on this island historically a trading post for the fishing industry. His cabins have draw attention across the world. The estethic cabins are 34 square metres are one of a kind, by architect Snorre Stinessen. 4 cabins are built, 2 are in progress. The materials and solutions are impressing. Litterally hanging over the sea, with 3 walls made of massive glass, with handmade and specialized glass, Corian and wooden interior solutions for small spaces these cabins are inspiring, convienient and practical. I spent a night here and offered a evening yoga class! If you visit, book yourself a trip up in the mountains or at sea!

Sitting in the cabin I was amazed seeing the storm outside. Wind, waves and rain hot the huge glass surfaces that cover three walls of the cabin. I felt peace inside the cabin where I sat in the beautiful Scandia chair by Fjord Fiesta covered in a warm wool blanket. imageimageimageimage image
