Mylla, located one hour north of Oslo, is a small 84 square meter (940 square foot) ski cabin for a family of four and their guests. Though planning regulations required a gable roof, Mylla instead splits the gable roof in half to form a series of shed roofs. This produced a pinwheel plan with two sheltered outdoor spaces—the Morning porch and the Evening porch—which are protected from the wind and, most importantly, protected from snow shed from the roofs. The compact interior, finished in plywood, can house up to twelve people across three dedicated bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Custom plywood furniture, including bed frames, bunk beds, couch, dining table, benches, and shelves are found throughout. The wings of the house engage four distinct characters of the site: the great room looks onto Mylla Lake, the guest room looks towards the rolling hillside, the kids’ room looks up at the sky, and the bedroom has a private view of the towering forest.
