Norway: Where Reindeer-Spotting Meets Design

live reindeer site

Home to some of Europe’s last remaining reindeer herds, Norway’s windswept Dovre Mountains, about five hours north of Oslo by car, now offer a warm and visually stimulating spot for design pilgrims and animal lovers alike: Tverrfjellhytta. Commissioned by the Norwegian Wild Reindeer Foundation and designed by cutting-edge architecture firm Snøhetta, the site appears to be made of weathered driftwood (actually, it’s pine, sculpted by shipbuilders using computerized milling technology). Inside, the organic-looking benches face an expansive glass wall—the ideal perch for taking in a few real-life reindeer games.
