Tubakuba Mountain Hub by architect Espen Folgerø with students from the Bergen School of Architecture

According to Folgerø, the tube-like doorway was inspired by the shape of a brass instrument. "The entrance is shaped like the mouth of a tuba...The aim was to experiment with wood as a material."

I really like the entrance of this mountain house and how children can crawl through easily, and adults are meant to crouch through the entrance. The view is spectacular and the hut compliments it without taking away from the beauty.
