Manshausen 2.0
by Stinessen Arkitektur

Shortlisted for hospitality building of the year at Dezeen Awards 2019, Manshausen 2.0 by Stinessen Arkitektur is the addition of three new cabins and a sauna to the Manshausen Island Resort.

The resort on the remote island of Manshausen, which was once a trading post for the fishing community, is an eco-retreat founded by Børge Ousland, the Norwegian polar explorer who was the first person to cross the Arctic solo. Stinessen Arkitektur's design of the resort – made up of a total of seven cabins and a sauna – was inspired by Manshausen Island's Arctic Circle location, surrounded by mountains and the Barents Sea. A renovated farmhouse dating from the 18th century that has been converted into a library and restaurant also help to make up the resort. The three new cabins join the original four cabins, which are located on the stone quays are perched on a rocky outcrop on the northern edge of the island, looking out over the Barents Sea.
