Manshausen 2.0

Norwegian practice Stinessen Arkitektur which was founded by Snorre Stinessen in 2013 has built three cabins and a sauna on an island that was once a trading post for the fishing community in the remote Steigen Archipelago off the coast of Norway. The island, which is home to the largest population of sea eagles in the world, is also the first area in Norway to be certified plastic-free by White Flag International. The project titled Manshausen 2.0 is an extension of the Manshausen Island Resort which was an eco-retreat founded by Børge Ousland. The project has also been longlisted for a 2019 Dezeen Award.

 The cabins can accommodate two to four people, with a kitchen and dining area and space for luggage. The cabin floor gently slopes up which levels out as a viewing platform with floor-to-ceiling glazing on three sides. Guests enter the cabins via a deck perched on the rocky outcrop. The cabins have been perched on a rocky outcrop on the northern edge of the island after taking into account wave height in both normal and extreme weather conditions
