The folks at Snøhetta are always up to something interesting, whether it’s a gigantic opera house or simply a place to watch the reindeer pass by. Located in the Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella National Park in Norway, this small pavilion beautifully frames the idyllic mountain view. I think the best part has to be the materials themselves, these giant wooden beams that have been sculpted to look like natural rock formations. The formations curve around to the inside of the structure and act as tiered seating, a perfect place to take in the view. What’s also kind of interesting though is that if you look at the structure from the other side it’s a super minimal glass box, which is also beautiful, but it feels like the exact opposite of the front of the pavilion.
