At the end of a newly developed estate dominated by white three story detached houses you will find this stretched out house – setting it self apart in several ways.
To accommodate the three metre drop on the plot the house has two storeys towards north and one towards south. The shape of the house is strongly influenced by the shape of the plot – which means it stands out from the rest of the houses in the area, with its tight minimalist Scandinavian design. To avoid being dominated be the surrounding houses the roof line is raised adding a very characteristic look. With a very “closed” facade towards the rest of the estate and a very “open” facade toward south the owners will benefit from the fantastic views of the area.
The Norwegian architects from HUSGALLERIET (House Gallery) says the house benefit from the large windows and doors creating great views and allow plenty of daylight to enter the home.
The whole build is tied to a strict colour scheme with white walls and brown windows externally. As a contrast to the “cold” external the interior has a very thought through colour palette – with warm grey beige colours. Walls, ceilings and internal details are all in the same colour scheme with variations in saturation. The interior is spiced up with details in walnut, cobber and brass.
