Stimen is a tourist destination close to the Arctic Circle. The resort consists of several small hexagonal high-rise dwellings.
In the first floor all of these small houses offer public features creating a meeting point between inhabitants and visitors of the resort. The features span from outdoor art exhibition areas to bicycle repair shops, fishing spots, a hot-smoke fish tower and a “high rise sauna”.
The idea was not merely to create a tourist destination, but more than anything a place enjoyed by the locals. Our idea was simple: If the locals enjoy it, tourist eventually will.
The project was designed in close relation with Tomos Osmond back in the Fantastic Norway-days.
