Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter | Villa Holmenkollen

Architecture Enebolig, Jerpefaret, Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

This house on the hilly outskirts of Oslo is orientated toward the southwest, where the view shed features forests, lakes, and the Oslo fjord. To accommodate a grade that occasionally measures 60 degrees, the site is organized into terraces, and the interior of the home was strategically planned to encourage profound interaction with the immediate landscape and distant horizon.
