Pulpit Rock Lodge, crafted in timber, goes greener than before

The Pulpit Rock Lodge, located at the old pulpit in Stavanger, Norway, welcomes in excess of 100,000 tourists a year. Brooding over the Lysefjord, the 1,290 sq. meters eco-lodge is crafted in timber and laminated plywood planks held together by wooden dowels. The local architects Helen & Hard have allowed it to gel with the surrounding environment brilliantly.

A well-insulated building body with few thermal bridges, passive and low energy windows, climate monitor with little air leakage, balanced ventilation with a combination of rotary heat exchanger and plate switches — these are just glimpses of the tremendous job done by the architects. The U value of the walls is 0.14 W/m2K since these are 80 cm thick. The new lodge is two times more energy-efficient than the old Fjellstue hut.
