Located on one of the most beautiful sites in Bergen, this striking family residence was originally an old house dating from the 1940s. As the original house was too small for the needs of the present owners, we were commissioned to redevelop the site for a modern family dwelling. The main challenge here was to create a completely new house that looked and felt big, yet kept the small footprint of the original. Retaining the existing foundation helped to keep construction costs low and to minimise the impact of the new house on this beautiful site, overlooking Nordåsvatn, Bergen.
