Floating in the 604 meters cliff high above Pulpit Rock, The Bolder Sky Lodges are two one-legged cabins with a spectacular view of Norway’s Lysefjord.
The Sky Lodges measure 22 square meters of living space and include kitchen and dining space, two double bedrooms, and a bathroom. The interior is carefully curated to harmonize with the view: a dark oak ceiling and walls, concrete flooring, and a dark-toned décor dominate the space.
Architect John Birger Grytdal from Norgeshus imagined a two-floor cube with floor-to-ceiling glazing wrapped in Canadian cedar wood balancing on one steel pillar drilled 3.5 meters into the ground.
The cubes are intentionally placed on the edge of the sloping mountain. It’s like standing in a glass elevator with the familiar sinking feeling.JOHN BIRGER GRYTDAL, ARCHITECT AT NORGESHUS
The border between inside and outside had to be blurred to convey the feeling of floating in nature, and with views from this breathtaking vantage point, you are as close to sleeping in the clouds as you will ever get.
