Deep in the woods lies a big house. It’s a recently constructed Nordic house which is slightly reminiscent of Valhalla, in Norse mythology the enormous hall in Asgard which was ruled over by the god Odin. It has wooden shingles on the roof and massive beams supporting the 17-metre high building, like guy lines on a tent. In fact, it was the idea of a tent that inspired the design of the building.
Lulu Mosquito, in collaboration with the client and the architect, was involved throughout the construction process, from the early ideas phase until the final structure was ready. When the project reached the interior decorating phase, Lulu was given free rein. The brief was to create a forest house that was practical, rustic, Nordic and which would inspire thoughts of outdoor living.
The sleeping cabins, which we christened the second part of the building, consist of two bathrooms, a storage room and two guest bedrooms. The rooms have a slightly spartan feel, and are located next to each other along the hallway, like small wood huts on a street. The beds are made with green felt featuring leather straps from ferm LIVING, and the exciting literature on outdoor living leaves guests with a feeling of simplicity and pure living. Camp is home!
