extension double family house

andersen - austenå/løvdal



The extension is barely visible from the street, and the most important rooms such as kitchen, library and living room remain in their original place, thereby paying tribute to the qualities of the old house. The façade is clad with untreated aspen and the interior is built of birch plywood.


In 1995 the project was awarded Grosserer Harald Sundts Prize.
