An extension would like to break completely with the style of the old building. It gives a significant signal about the new era.
And sometimes the signal is so aesthetic and clear that a price is awarded.
As this extension, called Spiral House, was rewarded.
Nykredit’s Motivation Prize is high in the Nordic region, and this year it went to the Copenhagen and Rotterdam-based architectural office Powerhouse Company, which has signed Spiral House.
During the award of the year’s prize of 13. 000 euros to the head of architect’s Copenhagen office, Charles Bessard, jury member Mette Kynne Frandsen said among other things that among the innovative in the field of international architecture, Powerhouse Company stands out as one of the most talented.
Desired Special Design Free
Is this the world’s coolest architectural villa?
Built on 200 square meters was built in the period 2005-2008, and construction costs came to 300. 000 euros, just over NOK 2.2 million.
The starting point for the project was that the young owners of the old farmhouse in the mansion would have an extension with a special design freeze on.
And they got it in full moon.
Tribute to the landscape
This new twisted two-storey wing is primarily designed to accommodate residents’ guests and visitors. The bright living room on the ground level is the main room of the new building, and directly above the living room there are a number of smaller living and sleeping areas.
Here there was a ceiling
The way the extension is made with windows and viewpoints in all directions gives the owners and visitors an insight into today’s advanced architecture, but also an outlook for the idyllic, park-like landscape on the 13th. 000 square meter plot.
A strong meeting between old and new
The picturesque atmosphere around the house is enhanced by the fact that a small river slides through the flat terrain.
In addition, the range of tall, old trees forms a rural setting around both the traditional, coarse brick house and the state of the art.
This is award winning, Norwegian architecture
Center opening and view stair
Otherwise, it is quite special that you enter the Spiral House extension through an open space in the center of the building body, a patio. And the stairs to the top level of the extras are also not quite ordinary. It goes calm and majestic from the first floor and to the rooms at the top so you get an ever changing experience of the countryside outside the house.
Oslo architects study the Powerhouse Company
– I agree that the first two private homes of award-winning Powerhouse Company, Spiral House and Villa 1 show originality, comments Anders D. Melsom at the Oslo Architecture and Design College.
The slum house became a design gem
He presented one of the office’s two leaders, Charles Bessard, as guest lecturer for the students at AHO this spring, and he was struck by the professional breadth of these architects who are currently drawing a series of exciting projects, including city plans. .
