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.

Great detailing and great use of materials. Only the white mesh on the facade in the first picture is a little disappointing...

It's well thought-out. I like how each unit does not block the line of site, of the unit above it.Colors match the environment. Nice. Would like to know more about the interior, yes... From a techie point of view, it would be pleasant to hear about which eco/green/energy saving features have been employed.
