Vityxne – Mountain cabin in a cold climate

On this site grows a rare plant called Vityxne. It is a type of orchid with small white scented flowers that sit in rows along the stem. Vityxne is a rare plant, but can be found throughout all of Sweden. The subspecies Fjällyxne only grows in the mountain regions.

The mountain cabin Vityxne was created in close symbiosis with the client. The shape of the house comes from an idea of a ”loaf of bread” cut in half and shifted a bit. The exterior is a robust construction with silvery metal roof and a custom facade of a glulam panel wall. The lighting has been specially designed and is recessed in the ceiling and walls in all rooms.
