Lysefjorden, Norway

The Bolder

A night in the clouds

Six off-grid cabins float high above Norway’s Lysefjord. In these fully equipped, compact accommodations known as The Bolder Sky Lodges and Star Lodges you are as close to sleeping in the clouds as you will ever get. To draw the serenity of nature inside the cabins, a minimalistic design ethos with Vipp furniture and kitchen in natural and durable materials in earthy colors and organic textures welcomes the guests for an out of the ordinary experience.

At one with nature

To reflect the nature of the building site, dominated by granite and slow growing pine trees, Snøhetta chose to work with wood and concrete with aggregate from the actual site as the main materials for the project. The trees that had to be taken down during the construction have been set aside to be re-used for other parts of the projects, and the granite that has been cut out of the ground has been used to make the concrete for the construction.

Cooking with a view

The Sky Lodges measure 22 square meters of living space and include kitchen and dining space, two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The interior is carefully curated to harmonise with the view: dark oak ceiling and walls, concrete flooring and a dark-toned décor dominates the space. Tom Norland chose the Danish design company Vipp for its timeless and functional design. The shop, Element Studio in Norway has provided the interior from Vipp ranging from kitchen, furniture and lighting to tableware and accessories.
