enebolig/single family house

villa aas

oslo 2010-13

 

The site is both narrow and steep. Aerated slabs is used for the two lower floors, taking care of the utility and private spaces, while an all glass top floor contains the common spaces. The top floor has beautiful views towards Oslo and the Oslo fjord. 

 

The white glazing is highly insulated aerogel glazing, only 76mm thin. The thinness is very attractive in this tight situation, but more importantly, it gives the top floor a unique daylight quality.The steep sloping terrain is modified with Cor-Ten steel retaining walls creating a sharp contrast to the refined materials of the building itself and creating a series of specific places in the garden.
