Norwegian Mountaineering Center in Møre og Romsdal, Norway by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

The Norwegian Mountaineering Center is anchored in an innovative interpretation of nature’s fantastic dimensions and the dramatic experience of mountaineering. The design of the building is based on its function as a mountaineering center and gathering place for both locals and visitors. This provides the structure with a characteristic volume communicating its contents with exciting and unique geometrical expression. Its outer skin is clad in a uniform surface, highlighting its originality and situation next to the train tracks of Raumabanen and the station area in the Åndalsnes town center.

Pocket Farm in Akershus, Norway by oslo school of architecture and design

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

Article source: oslo school of architecture and design

It is said that Oslo is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe, and that building land within its natural boundaries is full. To accommodate future growth Oslo will have to look beyond, to municipalities within commuting distance. One such municipality is Nes i Akershus, one of the principal agricultural producers of grain in the country. Nes does not want to become a suburb of Oslo, so it is looking for alternative modes of accommodating additional population without losing its rural character.

Cabin Straumsnes in Tingvoll, Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

Paradoxically the new main cabin at Årsund was built after the annex. This due to the fact that the original cabin, with exception of the annex, was removed to make way for the new-build. Moreover, the annex was drawn by another architect office and completed a few years ago. We therefore had to design a new whole, which included the annex and yet at the same time created a new building which in itself would provide a satisfactory solution both for site and program.

Loft renovation in Oslo, Norway by Austigard Arkitektur AS

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

Article source: Austigard Arkitektur AS 

The architect was approached by the client with the request of converting the existing loft from uninsulated storage to living spaces. Due to the low ceiling height at about 2.1 at the maximum, the client suggested the roof be completely rebuilt in a position about one meter higher. This original plan would have doubled the building budget and most probably have been rejected by building authorities due to height restrictions. Instead the architect suggested keeping the roof in the same position, and instead work with the space so that it would be usable and feel spacious, even with the limited ceiling height.

House on a cliff in Oslo, Norway by Austigard Arkitektur AS

Friday, April 8th, 2016

Article source: Austigard Arkitektur AS

The client asked the architect for a one-room extension, which is what the zoning laws would permit. Since The house had only a small garden in front, facing morning sun, so the architect proposed to put the extension largely below ground, and allow for a big rooftop terrace facing evening sun and sunset. This would also allow for a more secluded location of the extended room, which was a wish by the client.
