Nature Shelters are as essential as architecture can be. It is the often minimum required construction needed for comfort and shelter from wind and weather. The Norwegian phrase «friluftsliv» is one of the words, like «fjord» that is deeply Norwegian. "Friluftsliv" is essentially the art of being in nature. Building a small piece of improvised nature shelter, often made out of natural materials found on a site is a classic Norwegian «friluftsliv» skill. Making your time in nature enjoyable and comfortable is considered essential to the ability to connect with nature on a deeper level. At Biotope we have many years of nature shelter building experience, from both architecturally designed shelters to improvised the shelters. We aim to design open and inviting spaces allowing you to connect with nature in comfort. We love the small spaces where you can reflect and be alone in nature or where you can share time with family or friends. We are designing the architecture for your life outdoors.
