Norwegian architectural office Biotope designed a simple bird hide / wind shelter in collaboration with people in the region Varanger, provides comfortable facilities for visiting birders and local nature enthusiasts.
This wood shelter can be easy built on site but all the materials had to be transported to site by boat or helicopters.

Located on the Norways easternmost point, easily reached within a day from most places in Europe, Varanger increasingly become a popular birding destination in the arctic.
The bird hide / wind shelter is a good place to use as a base camp in March. From the hide you also have great views towards the slope below the steepest part of the bird cliff.
Biotope is Norways first and only architectural office with special expertise on birds and birdwatching. They design bird hides, shelters, nature trails, outdoor amphitheaters and much more.
