The Modern Minimalist House of Edge House By Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL, Oslo

Located in Suburb of Oslo, The edge house was designed in limited area. This house was designed by Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL. The own area had purchased a challenging site with 8 meters height difference from the access road to a plateau. To save the plateau, the building was pushed towards the eastern perimeter of the site, suspended above the slope on slender steel columns. The entrance stair rises along the slope through the house up to the plateau.
This strategy avoids costly blasting, hiding the technical connections in the stair. It saves at the same time the existing characteristics of the site, creating a dramatic interplay between volume and site. The entrance condition and the experience from the inside attempts to underline this interplay.
The compact interior is horizontally organized around the cut for the entrance stair. Bedrooms and bathrooms are effectively organized along a corridor. The main structure is steel, with a polished concrete floor slab. The interior is clad in Birch plywood, the exterior in naturally colored fiber cement boards.
