“In connection with the construction of Baksalen school, we came in contact with Spinn architect, who eventually became involved and have drawn the cabins.

The cabins are relatively small, 15 m2, oak-shaped and look like a stone. They are adapted to demanding wind conditions on the peaks, including a large, solid window.”
