The base of the structure is covered by a huge sheet of aluminium printed with a black and white image of trees, helping to camouflage it within the forest. The architects describes this as the cabin’s sixth facade.

“The boundaries between indoors and outdoors are blurred, making the cabin part of the forest,” said the firm, which has offices in New York and Oslo.
