An hour drive north of Oslo, on the hillside facing the snowy Norwegian Forest and the calm Mjøsa lake, is the Gjoevik House by Norm Architects. The architects whose name is synonymous with the Danish design principles of modern minimalism and hygge have created a truly humble, cosy and private home.

The cluster house is made up of six overlapping cubes of various sizes, all clad in timber and each maximising the incredible views through large floor to ceiling windows. The timber was chosen specifically for its ability to age beautifully together with the surrounding landscape and establishes a strong connection to nature.

The interior is unsurprisingly minimal and cleverly combines material and structure to separate spaces while at the same time using the cluster of cubes to create a ‘togetherness’ regardless of where you are in the house. Walking through the cubes you get the distinct feeling of natural flow, custom made furniture intentionally placed in the spaces you’d relax in all day long; small cosy nooks well balanced with larger living areas and an abundance of windows looking over the white-washed land providing peace and tranquility.

Norm Architects put it perfectly: “Beautifully blending in with its harsh yet peaceful surroundings with its humble structure and cosy cubes, the house showcases the epitome of hygge".
