When it comes to adventuring and also staying in the Fjords of Norway, there are plenty of places that afford you the ability to rest your head without being too far removed from the natural experience. We’ve covered our fair share of those lodgings in the past, but few compare to Biotope’s Observation Deck that is situated above Norway’s Fjords. Headquartered out of Vardø, Norway, architectural firm Biotope combines lifelong passion for nature, outdoor life and architecture to create everything from gap huts and storm cabins, to outdoor ampitheaters and observation deck dwellings like the Domen Viewpoint you see here. Instead of a fully-enclosed, single structure, Domen Viewpoint contains three separate yet connected rooms with an alternating, almost tessellation-esque configuration of either walls or floor-to-ceiling windows that make this a building–and an experience–unlike any other on the planet. It’s big city design mixed with small town charm and finished in a landscape that’s too picturesque for words. When traveling internationally is a thing again, expect to find us here. Learn more about the Domen Viewpont, the winters of Vardø and the Biotope team at the link below.
