enebolig/single family house

oslo 2006-12

 

This small house in the suburbs of Oslo tries to maximize the restricted space so that 8 persons can have enough room to live. The kids top floor has a curtain wall of bamboo making privacy possible despite very limited distance to neighboring houses. The master bedroom is in the basement with its own little sunken garden outside. The magnolia outside the master bedroom was rescued from the garden where the house now is built and replanted.

 

Received honorable mention at the Oslo City Prize for Architecture 2013.
