The first of four stilted cabins set high up in Sweden’s Åsberget mountains is a vision of pure simplicity, tranquillity and reconnection. Designed by Stockholm-based architect Hanna Michelson, each timber Lofthuset (loft house) will overlook the former ski slope to create the Bergaliv (meaning mountain life) Landscape Hotel. This is a retreat with the sole purpose of providing individuals and couples with an idyllic sanctuary, not to mention a peaceful place for plenty of contemplation.
From four powerful timber beams set deep into the hillside rises a humble cabin getaway. Looming 33ft over its surrounding landscape, the cabin is set across two 14sqm floors, each of which offers its guests two different experiences with the surrounding nature.
