From the architect. The existing house was built in 1969 as a twin to the neighboring building. It did not function well to the demands of 2008-living, neither in the room sizes nor in their solutions, and it had generally a need for restoration work.

Element, together with the client, has come to a solution where mainly the bottom two stories are rehabilitated while the top story is replaced with a lighter and more open construction which opens up towards a grand view of the fjord.

This is a big change from the earlier situation where it was necessary to go down a level to see the view.

The top volume is 3 meters cantilevered over the rest of the volumes and is pulled away from the road to make room for a larger sun deck towards the south and to let more light into the building. This deck is also thereby sheltered from the northern wind.

The architectural expression strengthens the qualities on the site and reflects its norhtern orientation. At the same time it respects the existing constructive principles.

Il pieghevole borsa Longchamp · October 17, 2013

The whole bag is 18 by 11.5 by 6 inches and weighs in at 2.7 pounds when without contents. That's very light, especially considering that the contour Pair of scales is meant to be an all-in-one bag that replaces both your purse and your laptop bags . The bag's best lineament is that one margin is smartly contoured to quiescence against your corporeal substance|bodily part|body} without straining your back. When you're carrying all your belongings in one bag, watch to center of gravity is a must. The contour Pair of scales is incredibly well-reflection-out in that defer to, and it could be a profitable choice for women who might normally opt for a backpack or rolling bag.
