From the architect. A slope in the Gudbrandsdalen valley generates narrow bodies following the contours of the land. Generous apartments are arranged 4 in each building, clad in large scale prefabricated wooden elements. The apartment types are tuned to the pleasant week-end life in the mountains. A second project; Nirvana 2 with 36 apartments, is situated uphill.
