#11 Extension of an ordinary small villa

The characteristic curving form utilizes the wind factor, so the cooling winds do not directly strike the building’s walls

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

“Villa Leimio is a family house that has been realized as a renovation of an old house dating back to the 1980s. The original house was constructed with yellow bricks and has undergone notable changes.”

#10 New housing and restored old buildings

The former shipyard of Aker was the first brown field area in Oslo that was transformed into a new urban neighbourhood

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Architecture & Landscape

“It was important to create good ties to Bryggegate street. A transparent entrance and reuse of the original walls of the alley highlights both the new building, the historic buildings and the original urban space.”

Perspectives on Nordic Housing

#8 Marianne Ibler

– All the buildings are made by Nordic architects and demonstrate the settings for a modern society with great focus on sustainability, social responsibility and good living conditions. All aspects that most of us architects agree upon.

Quote from the foreword in our publication A New Golden Age ‘Nordic Housing’.

#9 Social sphere and privat space

The aim was to meet a wish for a social sphere where you can chat with the neighbours over the hedge and also provide space to be one’s own family

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

Both E+E and KPF’s houses are great examples on how social sphere can interact in the private space.

Reuters Have: “The terraced houses are characterised by light, air and spaciousness throughout the three floors with large windows on the east and west facades. These terraced houses all have double-floor rooms.”

Bakke Allé: “The houses are grouped two-and-two in eight double houses around a central oval green area with lawns and hardwood trees. The 16 houses, which have the same scale as the neighbourhood’s villas, are adapted to the geometry of their grounds.”
