enebolig/single family house

kollstrøm/østberg

oslo 2004-07

 

The house is conceived as two distinct elements, the concrete part takes care of bathrooms, storage, stairs etc, while a folded timber envelope encloses the rest of the program. A 18m long carp pond shelters the garden from the entrance pathway.

 

In 2011 the project was finalist for the Oslo City Prize for Architecture.
