Two Apartment Buildings in Oslo
MetadataShow full item record
The diploma is two apartment buildings in Oslo. They are situated next to a collection of free standing urban houses. A close clustering of buildings creates a dynamic urban situation. They are neither perimeter-block or free-standing block, but embody certain qualities of each of these typologies. The focus is on privacy of the interior, on collective spaces of apartments and the city between two buildings. The apartments have rooms that can be reached in various ways, giving a flexibility to the plan. The multitude of layers in the façade gives an outside feeling to the inside space. On the ground floor the two buildings are connected by a piazza, with the aim of creating a feeling of living in the city together.
