Entry Description: Manshausen Island is situated in the Steigen Archipelago off the coast of Northern Norway. The resort was planned and laid out in consideraton of the Islandīs topography and the main existing structure – the old stone quays. The cabins are all but one placed on the stonequays, partially cantilivered above the sea, one placed on a natural shelf on the rocky formations above . The positioning and orientation of all the cabins is based on the consideration of their individual panoramic views and privacy for the guests. The cabins are designed to offer their guests shelter and comfort while at the same time underlining the dramatic experience of the elements outside; the sea, landscape, changing lights, weather and different seasons. Above all the cabins endeavour to fulfill the functional requirements of the guests, with with ample space for luggage and clothing/equipment, a comfortable bathroom and a kitchen/dining area.
