It’s so easy to make an elongated room for three smaller ones.

The space division and planning are often a challenge. Two sliding doors share the room in this Gjøvik house in three departments: office, intersection and living room.
– The old house, formerly a stable, was completely renovated and decorated so that the long building with sliding doors can easily be divided into wood, almost like a long train car with separate coupons, says architect Kurt Breitenstein in Dahle / Breitenstein Architects in Oslo.
Floor to ceiling window
– Firstly, we wanted a bright and friendly main room with home office and kitchen / living room in close proximity to each other. The second requirement was that we would replace the previous window in the wall against Mjøsa with a really large window. We have received that. It goes from floor to ceiling. From the living area we now look over lush farming areas and the riverside along both sides of the water, the owners say.
They are also very pleased with the sliding door solution in the long-range house.
– It’s good to have when we are more present and some will work at the office, others cook, watch tv or just enjoy the view. With all the doors closed we do not disturb each other when something is to be done, “says the owners.
Kitchen hanging over the pelvis
The refurbishment of the large house went into stages.
– It’s easy to lose something creative on the road, the owners think. We also had several exciting building proposals for evaluation. Among other things, a kitchen hanging like a glass box over the creek that sings just past the house.
The colors in the house are separate sections. Several of the walls are painted in a distinctive, strongly yellowish-brown color. It has the owners themselves mixed for the occasion, and it provides both warmth and power to the room. The two sliding doors, which are painted in turquoise, provide a sharp contrast. The sky-blue rubber floor both dampens the noise and is comfortable to walk on.
– Many changes have been made to this property since it was built in the 20’s. It was also drawn by an employee at the office of the well-renowned architect Arnstein Arneberg, and is staged in a single house down the slope towards Mjøsa.
The house was built in stages and could be called a sniper house. In the lower section, the owners have had paintings for many years – they are both artists. For this reason, it has been natural for them to engage in shape and design, even when it comes to buildings.
