Brings Visual Interest to the Neighborhood

 

Best known for their success in their humanitarian works undertaken in rural areas of Thailand and other less developed parts of the world, this modern house extension is TYIN’s first attempt at commercial architecture back home in Norway.

The project is an addition to a conventional single-family house in a very traditional Norwegian neighbourhood. In answering to the much needed expansion of living space for the family of four, TYIN created a 2.5 storeys odd shaped block addition that attaches to the side of the existing house.

On the ground floor the project created a spacious entry area with a combined bath- and laundry-room. The second floor of the addition adds a new multi-purpose room with a high ceiling. This constitutes a break with the monotonous section common to this type of house from the 1950s.

The exterior façade is cladded with natural treated pine, with a slightly recessed foyer and a dash of orange paint to define the new entryway. The interiors are lined with a lighter tone Norwegian Birch plywood, immaculately detailed to ensure a continuous surface while intentionally expressing the bolts and panel lines to maintain a sense of scale.
