Dwell - Have You Ever Wanted to Stay in a Norwegian Sea Cabin? This boutique hotel on Norway's Manshausen Island is made up of four sea cabins that jut out from their natural ledge. Architect Snorre Stinessen carefully positioned them on an existing stone quay and built them to fit two to four travelers, or a family of five. To allow them to cantilever off the edge, their cross laminated timber floor plates are mounted onto two steel beams.
An artist-designed intervention called "Echo Orbit" is adding shade as well as beauty to Brisbane. Beneath the canopy are local musicians's song lyrics painted onto the sidewalk, reflecting the artistic importance of the site. #LQC #Placemaking
