How does the top architect live on his own Whale cabin?

This new villa on Oslo’s west side last year had the rare honor of having its own book.

It has been edited by Børre Skodvin and written by architect Erik Langdalen, known for having led the listing of the much-featured Hamsun Center.

In this book, Langdalen emphasizes that Smestad House was created under very strict building engineering and regulatory frameworks.

When the site decides

This has a room enhancing effect.

Barley Concrete

The accommodation is molded in self-compact, gray concrete and a main part includes storage, WC, bathroom, entrance hall, wardrobe, fireplaces, stairs and laundry.

Folded solid wood
