From the architect. This 350 sqm single family residence is located in Asker outside Oslo. The site is secluded and faces towards a field. The house is placed on a slope with an entrance from the back side. Main entry for the house on the second floor where childrens bedrooms and the garage are located. The double-volume living area on the ground floor is specially designed to accommodate the owner's grand piano and master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The house is clad in Siberian pine which will acquire a grey patina over time.

it's true. some designers these days just go for that shock factor. i feel that simplicity can be just as "complicated"-- it is the discipline to restrain from creating wasteful space and things--- and starting from what is necessary.

i feel the photography isn't really telling the complete story here... especially in those interior shots.

I agree with pedro. If a simple box has the solutions needed, then i don`t see any point in making complicated things just for eye candy.

Haresh, i don't really get your comment...why not a rectangular box?a non regular shaped form is a best option for start just because??
Architecture is not the quest for originality.

Good box on the hugely open site. I was thinking why just a rectangular box there is lots of shape in geometry
