housing block

bekkelagsveien 9b

oslo 1996-2000


Our solution to a very steep site was to park the cars and enter the house from the top. The building is a simple volume with minor deformations to make use of local opportunities and avoid local problems.


In 2001 the project was nominated to the European Mies van der Rohe award.
