A wonderful juxtaposition of organic curves and a rectilinear structure, this Norwegian Wild Reindeer Centre Pavilion is located at Hjerkinn on the outskirts of Dovrefjell National Park. It overlooks the Snøhetta Mountain and is 900 sqft. A 1,5km nature path brings visitors to this spectacular site, 1200 meters above sea level. The materials used to construct the pavilion consist of timber and steel; they are left untreated giving way to a rustic and natural quality. The interior was created with the help of the latest 3d computer programming. Nature should always be an influence within design, it is the best muse; executed well within this pavilions architectural language. Congrats Firm Snøhetta!
