The villa looks like it floats

The detached house with the round shapes appears to float over the towering surface of the yard.

So cool can a country villa be

Villa Joa All signed architect Tommie Wilhelmsen is something for himself. It rises slightly above ground level and it almost looks like the whole house is about to lift and leave mother earth.

It’s no wonder, as the source of inspiration for this house was a plane landing.

An interior of the ocean

– The building is 16 meters long and has a continuous glass facade on the top floor. This means, among other things, that the main shelters open completely to the ocean and the north-west, comments architect Wilhelmsen to Bonytt. no.

More cool projects

He has previously also noted remarkable architecture. Among other things, with a viewpoint that hangs many hundred meters above the Aurlandsfjord and spectacular villas. Fourteen of these are described in a separate book.

Both heavy and soft body

However, despite the fact that the house at Sola has a very compact construction and lead-thin materials, the building is soft and free on top of an arch. As such, it glides naturally into the rolling terrain around.

Inspired by functionists

In particular, the first houses of Tommie Wilhelmsen are special, “says Eirik T. Bøe, art historian and architect of architecture in the big Norwegian dictionary for Bonytt. no. Wilhelmsen makes the houses as the functionists would like to have them; very open and airy. But it is only in our days that the technique makes this possible, says the expert.

Floating Sculptural Shapes

Bøe adds that it is interesting to see how Wilhelmsen often puts his buildings on socks raised a little above the terrain. This gives them a distinctive, sculptural form.

Highlight, do not subvert the landscape

The art historian emphasizes that the term organic used frequently about Tommie Wilhelmsen’s homes does not concern that this architect wants to submit to the landscape – such as, for example, Norwegian architectural pioneers such as Knut Knutsen and Wenche Selmer advocated.

Playfulness and pleasure

– My ambition was to create an expressive and playful house that was easy too, explains Wilhelmsen. In addition to giving residents protection against wind and weather, it would give the owners pleasure and pleasure, “he says.

Terraced to the sea

The architect adds that this house is otherwise designed as a kind of landscape terrace. This special step was given to Wilhelmsen’s idea, for example, to have seen how classic, Italian and southern French homes open up against the Mediterranean.

Highlights the swollen forms.

One thing is that Wilhelmsen used materials that would be good to touch. In addition, he chose special material combinations to emphasize the soft curves of the house.

This seems extraordinary in the giant entrance in the top level. Here the flooring materials in white-oiled oak continue on the wall and further to cover the entire ceiling.

Borderless main floor

The entire main floor with living rooms and kitchen is shaped like a single large room. Here there are no boundaries in the form of thresholds or partitions. It is the actual furnishing that forms the different zones for either work and rest in this house.

The landscape is a part of the decor

The result is elegant – not least because nature just outside the doorway contributes and becomes a unique, ever-changing experience element in the house.

A traditional lower floor

The lower floor is divided into the more traditional room types everyone knows; bedrooms, wardrobes, bathroom, office, technical room and laundry room.

Off the living room opens wide sliding doors onto a terrace that is in line with the ridge. It seems like it hardly touches the terrain.

Heaven over the Jutland

– I think there is often too little emphasis that houses should give the owners life happiness and energy, says architect Tommie Wilhelmsen on the left. Here together with the developer, Per Inge Hamre in Husgalleriet.

– A well-done home can actually be a kind of show of life art. And then I think the building shows the ability to appreciate the near things like the sky above the Jærhavet or endless fields with corn axes that wind in the wind.

– Otherwise, the contour of a plane that landed was one of my most important sources of inspiration for this Sola villa. Set at the top of the house, this house is only one, only stretch ends architect Tommie Wilhelmsen.

– Tommie Wilhelmsen’s strong side as an architect is that he is what I want to call an artist. He draws homes that are playful, says housing developer Per Inge Hamre in Husgalleriet.
