The house replaces a demolished villa lying on a ridge in Bærum overlooking Sandvika and the fjord. The residence displays a modern and carefully considered architecture that provides excellent energy-saving quality of living, while the building's architectural characters provide exciting contrasts to the area's buildings. The width of the house creates a separation of the site to offer a private and a more public part of the house. This is prominent with large glass surfaces at an inner atrium / terrace that invites the nature into the house, while on the courtyard side of the house is made largely of dry walls, timber and plaster. On the lower part of the plot there is a landscaped outdoor pool area with a covered seating area with associated facilities.
