Text description provided by the architects.

This new house replaces a demolished house at the end of a cul-de-sac at Plateskogen Høvik outside Oslo. The property is situated near the sea and has fantastic views over the Oslo fjord. The height restriction was a challenge and much difficulty was resolved by locating the house at the rear of the plot so that the entire north wall remained below ground and with only a longitudinal skylight providing daylight.

An underground garage provides access to the other floors via elevator. The basement serves as a heavy base that anchors the house to the plot. The top floor, which houses the main facilities, “floats” on the base with a cantilevered volume that forms a covered entrance. MaterialsThe house mainly consists of white, pigmented plaster, stone walls, and elements of IPE as sun shading.
