Norway’s coolest apartment has a 5.2 meter high glass facade.
The tricks make the apartment a little bigger
Maybe Norway’s most beautiful cottage
Dream hut that takes your breath away
The violent ceiling height and the 5,2m sky-high glass facade are the first to hit you as you enter this remarkable modern home. It almost thrives on top of one of the blocks in the award winning Marienlyst Park complex at Majorstua and features views of the west and evening sky.
Design all over
Both floors of the modern studio apartment are designed by architect Einar Hagen in Lund Hagem arkitektur AS and are decorated in a personal interior style based on design furniture and art.
Kitchen is an appealing lookout
It’s the kitchen zone with the crazy glass wall that stretches over two full floors that attract the most attention.
– It was precisely the daylight that flooded unharmed from the gigafasade that we fell for, and inspired us to put the soul in the decor, the owners tell Bonytt. no.
Do you open the glass wall?
The glass top of the apartment gives sky lights far into the living rooms. And hoist the large, lower window opens the façade across the width.
– Thus, the kitchen / dining zone transforms into an outdoor space for use already in the early spring sun, says architect Einar Hagem to Bonytt. no.
Free zones in two levels
The net area of studyability is 92 square meters and both floors have a ceiling height of 2.6 meters – versus regular 2.4 meters.
This explains the extra airy atmosphere of the rooms.
Gallleriet is a home office
The main floor contains a kitchen and living room and bathroom as well as a staircase leading up to the dramatic gallery – which is also a home office.
On the second floor there are also changing rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms.
Not big but still messy
– Even though the apartment is not so big, under a hundred square meters, it is perceived as messy. The first floor with the height-adjustable glass wall is amazing, the residents say. “We sit warm and sheltered indoors, yet it’s like being out in the open.
Furthermore, it is a big plus for us that it is easy to move to other separate zones and floors in the house. Thus, this apartment offers many of the detached properties.
Otherwise, the owners appreciate rough furnishings like the rough, untreated concrete wall that covers the bottom of the back wall in the kitchen.
It’s a cumbersome contrast to all the chic white surfaces around the house.
Openness is best
Thanks to all the open floor areas and the clean flats in the living room, the owners let go of furniture and interior items on the walls, as they say.
They could freely and freely put the dining table and lounge on the floor, like oases in the middle of the rooms.
In such open, clean rooms, modernist furniture also enjoys the best. They are often beautiful seen from all sides, also from behind.
Just like this, the funkin-inspired “Cinema” armchairs are designed by the Swedish designer Gunilla Allard. The same goes for Erik Jørgensen’s classic EJ 315 sofa, launched in 1975.
