The Himmelkutter weekend house sits on a steep slope in the mountainous city of Sandnes, Norway and was designed by Tommie Wilhelmsen. The unusually shaped house has a triangular tip that juts out slicing the sky in two giving it its name, which translates to “Heaven cutter.” Part of the house is stacked in a cube-like form with a slightly crescent-shaped form coming out from it. All sides of the house look different, which was intentional on the architect’s part.

The wall of floor-to-ceiling windows in the main part of the house provides perfect views to the valley below and allows maximum daylight to flood the space. I love the wood slats on the ceiling and how it mixes with the concrete walls, similar to the exterior of the house.
