The construction of the cabin is made of prefabricated solid wooden elements of spruce which resulted in a short construction time, a great advantage on site in the mountainess scenery and due to the sometimes harsh weather conditions. Designed by Oslo-based firm Helen & Hard Architects.
Based on the result of extensive wind studies, the roof is shaped like the surrounding landscape, integrated to the terrain, making it easier for both the wind and snow to drift over.
Gudbrandslie Cabin is situated near Tyinkrysset, Filefjell at the border of Jotunheimen National Park.
