And the award goes to: Manshausen Island Resort in Norway

These Norwegian cabins were honoured with four awards at “The Oscars of Architecture”.

Architect Snorre Stinessen from Stinessen Arkitektur has won four awards and a special mention at the Architizer A+Awards.

“It’s flattering and very motivating,” he says.

Last Thursday, Stinessen from the city Tromsø in Northern Norway walked the red carpet in New York, taking home the prizes at the architecture award gala.

“It’s the world’s biggest architectural competition, and it’s considered a great honour to win the awards. It’s also called ‘The Oscars of Architecture’”, Stinessen says.

To be an architect is a creative profession, and Stinessen says this recognition gives him a feeling of being on the right track.

The challenge with projects like this is to make the architecture blend in with the environment and meet the guest’s functional needs at the same time, Stinessen explains.

Even in the breathtakingly beautiful surroundings that Steigen offers, he senses that people appreciate his work.

“In my opinion architecture is an underestimated mode of expression with which one can enhance an experience in many ways” he says.
