Manshausen 2.0 by Stinessen Arkitektur

Manshausen 2.0 is an extension of the Manshausen Island Resort located in Steigen, Norway.
It was completed in 2015 by Stinessen Arkitektur.

Manshausen Island is situated in the Steigen Archipelago off the coast of Northern Norway and is home to the world´s largest population of Sea Eagles. The Island´s position between majestic mountains and the Barents Sea is in itself the inspiration for the design.
The Island was historically a trading post for the fishing industry, today only visible in the massive stone quays on the Island. Additionally, there is an existing 18th century small farmhouse on the Island which was carefully restored and converted into a restaurant with upstairs library.
The extension completed June 2018 includes new cabins and a sauna/relax area in connection with a central seawater pond on the island. The sauna was made using left-over materials from the first stage of the building process and also old slate roof tiles found on the island. The design seeks to relate to the specific positioning in the pond, but also the surrounding landscape, while offering the guests a comfortable seating inside and an easy access to the cold water.
