In the municipality of Randaberg lies a house from the 1960s with an unusual extension of nuclear insulated concrete.

Civilian Architect MNAL Ole Serinius Trodahl shaped extensively as a snail house. It encloses the south east gable and then opens towards the yard and the garden.

Captures the lushness

Built at approx. 60 square meters have more neat solutions.

A small pool in black concrete is gathering against the yard and the entrance that collects the rainwater from the roof.

– I designed the snail housing because it fits the site well, and we call it Sneglehuset, says architect Trodahl.

He says that the extension opens up to the garden with glass surface to capture the lushness of the garden into the living room.

The building consists of two concrete arches. From the first floor a staircase leads up to the gallery.

Rønne became extrovert

The floors are made of sanded and impregnated concrete. In the gallery are the floorboards of oiled oak and the ceiling is of osp.

Creativity replaced with enthusiasm

Residents are Rigmor Bø and Øystein Lund Bø. Rigmor Bø says she was a little skeptical when the drawings were presented.

– I was afraid the extension would be too big, but it works. It works like a family room, an unusual and good room to be in.

– It is open with a lot of light, at the same time we are shielded with the concrete wall at the end. Both the gallery upstairs, the room downstairs and the glass section with opening to the garden work wonderfully well, says the house owner.
