The L-shaped house is located in an attractive residential neighborhood in Asker, Norway. Towards the lake and the view of the Oslo fjord, the house’s floor is raised to provide a more intimate living zone. This is where the “crack of daylight” provides light in between the floors and divides the building into an open bright area and a more private and dimmed one. The play with the light and the use of modern furniture generates the projects unique charm.
Simple materials are used throughout the house, the exterior cladding for the ground floor is
Corten steel which is a good match for the grass outside. The panels are weatherboard that is mounted vertically and stained in the same color as the upper floor. The walls and ceilings of the lower floors of the house are plastered.
