Tusen Ramundberget Restaurant by Murman Arkitekter in the middle of Ice Mountain- Thursday, October 11th 2012.
The restaurant is situated in Ramundberget on a small hill where the tree line meets the mountains. Tusen Ramundberget Restaurant by Murman Arkitekter realized in 2009, the restaurant’s design was inspired by the traditional Sami hut built for centuries by Sweden’s indigenous people, as explained by the architect Hans Murman. The big dimensions strands strong against the hard weather and a trunk is easy exchangeable if necessary. The logs also protect the underlying construction. The building finds its place between slow growing birch trees, brooks and rocks. In this unique and sensitive context we wanted a building in harmony with the nature, the year around and day and night.
Birch is the only tree that grows up to this altitude where the mountain moor starts. Choose birch as it is a local nature given façade material. You not need to paint it and it are nice to look at even when the bark is falling off. By choosing a wooden construction we achieved low weight and low carbon dioxide impact. It is a prefabricated building carefully put to the the ground and also a way to minimize the building time. The restaurant will work a sunny day as well in a vowing winter day around one of the fireplaces inside. The food and drink is based on local specialties.

The food that is served in the restaurant on local stone plates is local, reindeer and trout. The building is warmed up by ground heating and heat exchangers take care of the warmth from the air and water. To top up during really cold days electrical heating is used. In the summer when it is closed for skiers everything is turned off. The Tusen Ramundberget Restaurant by Murman Arkitekter has its own system for wastewater treatment, and it gets its own water from a source in the ground nearby. The round shape is a natural choice for an exposed situation and it lets the snow stay on the facade while letting the cold winds pass
