Appreciation towards Gartnerfuglen Arkitekter + Mariana de Delás for providing the following description:


The hideout is built on a steep slope facing a small mountain lake in the south of Norway. It is build on a secret location, away from all the small trails leading to the lake. It is only accessible by boat in summer and by skis in winter when the lake is frozen.

The family owning the land lives in a secluded farm across the lake where there is a berth in which the owner keeps a small rowing boat. For several generations the family’s small lake has been their preferred retreat for fishing, swimming or camping in solitude. In recent years, this beautiful place has been discovered by more and more people, and due to the Norwegian law of Public right of access (Allemannsretten) one can no longer expect to be alone here. It is this desire to reunite to nature and the possibility to retreat, completely isolated from other people that determined the inconvenient site; farthest away, behind a rock, shaded and lacking mobile and internet reception. Elements that could be considered inconvenient in the past and more and more becoming luxurious nowadays.

When in use, the hideout, serves as a place to seek for fishing, light a fire, have a nap and disconnect from any technological distraction for the clients to get in touch with the primal human condition of solitude surrounded by wild nature. When not in use, the hideout sits quietly and modestly in nature as if it were one of its creatures; blending in with the forest behind and even serving as pitstop for thirsty birds on their way to the lake.

The scree is dug out by hand and the removed rocks are placed in the water forming a natural pier for docking the boat and access. The hideout is made out of a timber skeleton and clad with birch twigs to give a camouflaging effect whilst keeping an insulating layer of air beneath the snow.

As one enters the hideout through the “ear” of the creature one encounters a narrow entry zone that has a built in desk with infinity views to the lake. It is a space to work, think and gaze to natures cinema. The space has also enough size to permit a change of clothes and storing your backpack. Up two steps, there is an open room for two people to lie down underneath the tower shaped skylight which creates a sacred atmosphere due to its height and small aperture.

Unlike the texturized natural exterior the clean white interior is envisioned to create the facing effect to nature and foster it. To emphasize a controlled human made environment, minimalistic and simplistic to boost the properties of nature; resembling  a movie theater where the black environment contrasts with the image amplifying the effect and dramatism of the visual spectacle.
