The house has a spiral structure with its origin at the central courtyard offering varying degrees of privacy. The bedroom and the bathroom are situated behind the courtyard whereas the kitchen and living area are placed around the garage as you look from the entrance.
The house is built 7 metres below road level such that the roof acts as a parking lot for 3 cars. The ‘Lighthouse’ gains its name from the fact that it is accessed via an illuminated glass cube that tops a concrete stair core.
This exceptional Norway Home decorated for Christmas caught our attention and we just had to share it with you. The cozy warm atmosphere is the result of careful interior design and seasonal decorating. All the rooms from the hallway storage closet to the small tree in a basket showcase how beautiful minimalism can be even around the holidays.
The three-story contemporary home was built to accommodate the owner’s habit of entertaining and frequently hosting fundraising events so the spaces were given an open feeling.
The red cedar-cladded upper volume slightly cantilevers over the lower pure white volume to offer a small shaded terrace. On top the flat roof provides the inhabitants with the choice of planting different vegetation that will enlarge the total surface of the garden and provide natural insulation while protecting the interiors from solar gain.
