Oslo cabin takes a sensitive position on steep terrain

Approximately one hour away from Oslo and on the Oslo fjord, this cabin for use all year is carefully placed on naturally occurring ledges in the steep terrain that surrounds. Designed by Jon Danielsen Aarhus, the cabin appears low and hidden from the arrival side and then opens up towards views on the sea. The driving force behind this sensitive approach was the client's desire to retain the site's existing bedrock and not alter the landscape with dynamite or any levelling.  Øystein Aspelund Further inspiration was drawn from a small existing cabin on the site. The small  building influenced not only how to situate the new cabin in the landscape but also its building colour, roof angle and overall form. The old cabin... En savoir plus

Oslo’s new library opens with spectacular cantilever

More than a decade after the initial design competition, and delays due to COVID-19, Deichman Bjørvika, Oslo’s new main library is now open. Designed by Atelier Oslo and Lundhagem and located between Oslo Central Station and the Oslo Opera house, the design is characterised by dramatic cantilevers that extend out into the public realm. Credit: Einar Aslaksen A cantilevered floor to the east of the building cantilevers over the street, while the fourth floor cantilevers nearly 20 meters over an urban plaza. The architects explain that these cantilevered floors are suspended from the roof, which provides structural strength thanks to a folded geometry.   Credit: Einar Aslaksen The entry floor of the library is la...

Skrivestue Faldbakken

The large plot is high and beautiful over the meadow landscape and the property consists of several built houses from various eras. A new extension could link the various existing buildings together, while the great view would be drawn into a new conservatory, a family room, or a writing room for the author.

The roof lift follows the existing roof angles and flat roof solution into existing intermediate buildings.The new building is a hot, frost-proof solid building where the main support is in laminated timber columns and girders, while the roof structure is in...

House Linnebo

The single family house is built on the very edge of the Oslo city limits with miles of dense forest behind it. It also means that the site is situated at the highest point over the city with a formidable view over the urban landscape, the fjords and hills in the distant horizon. The house is just completed with high density developments in front and around the building. Thorough analysis was done to assure that the house preserved the great views, even in a fully developed situation. That meant placing all living areas as high as the regulations permitted and also finding all close views and narrow, distant views and lights, defining specific qualities in each room. The kitchen and dining room are placed a bit down from the main living... En savoir plus
