Fordypningsrommet Fleinvær is a mono-cluster of twelve* custom built tiny houses that function inter-dependently in the Arctic Archipelago of Fleinvær, north of Norway. They are available to rent and/or are offered complimentary to Artists-In Residence.
At Fordypningsrommet Fleinvær single bed accommodations are not available because the commune requires multiple houses to have the all functions you need. Four of the tiny houses are meant for sleep, one is meant to inspire (the Tower House perched on its own column) one is a kitchen house, one is a studio house, one is a sauna on a pier, and one requires self-tidying (the others are cleaned by people brought over from the neighboring island).
The one of a kind cabins are constructed of a Kebony, an eco-friendly tropical hardwood.
The Tower House:
Hunter’s Cave is a sauna housed at the end of a pier:
In addition, there is a Kitchen house, a Studio, two houses with double beds and two houses with single beds on two floors.
With no shops, no cars and no dangerous animals, the hideaway and its lovely surroundings are dotted with wild grouse and a provide perfect view of the Aurora Borealis at night.
Open all season, the immersive experience at Fordypningsrommet Fleinvær allows for an unforgettably deep connection with the natural environment.
With support from the Culture Department at Nordland county municipality, artists can apply for a complimentary stay. Simply write a brief letter about what you do.
