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.

 

Oppdal is a municipality in Trøndelag, a county in the central part of Norway. The administrative centre is at 545 metres above sea level. Most of Oppdal's area is mountainous, with large areas above the treeline. The mountains extend from Dovrefjell in the south to Trollheimen in the north. The climate is harsh, even by Norwegian standards. The municipality is an alpine community with a long winter
