The annex in the mountains
Feel the nature inside
Between Dovrefjell and Trollheimen the architects from A38 Arkitekter created “The Diamond”, an annex with the greatest panorama view over Oppdal. This was a collaboration with Tv3 and the program "Adventurous Home Improvement" or in Norwegian “Eventyrlig Oppussing”. The brief was to create an annex with a modern expression that could contrast with the old courtyard. The result of a creative workshop in the architect office with many exciting ideas ended up as "The Diamond" in the middle of the mountains.
The concept is based on minimal interference with nature, which requires little ground work as it stands only on one pillar and the terrain is preserved almost untouched. Large windows are used for both the fantastic view of the site and the sky.
