Refurbishment often means much more than kidding some walls and laying on some coat paint. Should you really have a new order in an old house that is decorated for another time please feel free to go to work.

In such cases, it may be useful to have an architect or interior designer with the team. Just see what the experts have done with this older house on Bygdøy, youro cool at Frogner in Oslo as well as the funkisboligen on Kongsberg.

Moved walls and ceilings

Architect Knut Longva faced a number of challenges regarding the use of space in this old and narrow walled building at Ullevål Hageby in Oslo.

– It was especially the kitchen that had to be done drastically. It was a closed and sad room with worn green cabinets organized in a U-shape, says the architect of Bonytt.com

He is among other things known for the state-of-the-art National Library in Oslo and the Havarikommission’s stylish new building at Lillestrøm.

The trick that made the difference

Amazing solutions at Kragerø cabin

To make the kitchen zone in the house work better, Longva first removed the partition between the corridor and the then kitchen from the 60’s. This gave an airy, free connection between the three main rooms in the house; kitchen, dining room and living room facing the garden.

– In addition, this grip on the ground floor opened for traffic up the stairwell. It was also refurbished and it is beautifully blurred to the top of the house, explains the architect.

MEETING DESIGN TIME: It’s almost fifty years between the old design chairs PK 22 and the newer things like the teapot designed by Nigella Lawson. Photo: Nils Petter Dale

Fortunately, the old kitchen cabinets in solid wood were so solid that they could be reused. They were stuck on, removed all moldings and were sanded and painted again. With this, they became almost as new for a reasonable price.

Naustene you’ve never seen

The exit is also a chapter for itself. It is two and a half square meters, and the challenge was to reorganize it with a maximum of closet space. Architect Longva drew specialism and put in a big mirror that magnifies the visual experience of the room.

In the living room and in other rooms, the old wood floors were sanded down with a white pigmented paint. The floor in the living room consists of both old and new tables, while in the kitchen all floorboards are new – and with heating cables underneath.

Lowered the ceiling floor

Because the old ceiling room with marked slopes had very low ceilings, while the ceiling height below the floor was more than high, architect Longva could lower the floor level to the ceiling by 31 centimeters.

A HIGHER: Here you can see how the rehabilitated staircase stretches upwards in the house, almost like a beautiful piece of furniture. Photo: Nils Petter Dale

The procedure was to remove all of the old floor construction, re-insert a new beam, re-isolate, and finally rethink the old floor, both on the top and bottom.

This cabin is completely raw!

– This operation was much cheaper than the many thought it would be. Sometimes joinery works are amazingly beneficial, says Knut Longva.

The rooms on the second floor actually had an unnecessary height below the ceiling, the architect concludes.
