The new owner of a detached house in Molde wanted an extension of an existing bath- and bedroom. The house was still in more or less its original 1962-condition and appeared as a time-typical house from thisperiod. That is Scandinavian functionalism with a flat roof and brownexterior panels contrasted with white brick walls. Furthermore thehouse had an elegant and somewhat closed composition.The owner wanted to get the evening sun in the bathroom (which was onthe east side of the building) and to keep the morning sun in theexpansion of the bedroom without being exposed to neighbours. Viewsof the spectacular mountain range to the south were required from bothrooms.We initially wanted to make a clear distinction between the extensionand the original building. At the same time we did not want to createtoo much contrast in terms of materials and formal means. We chose touse wood cladding, as the existing building, while the colour of thenew cladding was taken from the original bright brick walls. We alsochanged the orientation of the panels. In order to solve the requestedlight preferences we brought in a new form, the quarter circle, whichwe held for a type of basic shape that could easily relate toarchitecture of the early sixties.The bathroom has a clear everyday zone in the innermost part with shower, toilet and sink, while the outer section provides the more time-spending bathroom artifacts; a bathtub, a wide window sill with a view and a door to the garden. The latter part has a skylight in the shape of a curve facing west. The room bathes in the late evening sun when the west-coast weather allows it. Tiles are sober in the inner part, whilst the outer part has a more festive consortium. The contrast between the inner and outer zones of the bathroom was in danger of being too hard. The relaxing ambiguity is that the outer zone suggests peace of mind in its use, yet at the same the form here is intense. While the inner zone, which reflects more efficiency, has a calmer expression in terms of colours and patterns.The bedroom is long and has three different zones. First, adressing-section with a large mirror and a backstage-like atmosphere.In the middle a lounge area with a fireplace and a generous window facingthe green to the north. At the end of the bedroom is the bed with alarge window and its view to the south. Over the bed a vaulted ceilingwith a window heralding the morning sun as well as giving a view ofthe stars at night.In retrospect, we were surprised at the modest exterior contrastbetween the extension and the original building. To a large extent webelieve this is due to the fact that the selected wood panels haveabout the same size as the bonds in the original brick wall, so thatthese two surfaces relate. This is particularly evident in the northfacade. Also, the quarter circles seem to work as form and at thesame time they provide the building with a touch of relieving humour.
