enebolig/single family house

engan

oslo 2005-09

 

A beautiful but very complicated bedrock provides the ground for this small house. The ground floors are four concrete terraces adapting to the topography. The intimacy of the relation between house and rock are almost such that one feels sitting on the ground at the dining table. The bedrooms are floating above in a separated timber volume clad in black fiber cement boards.
