4 Houses / On Office

On Office (Joao Vieira Costa, Leon Rost, Ricardo Guedes, Francesco Moncada) designed a housing project located right outside Oslo.  Since the existing neighborhood presents the same architectural atmosphere, where nature and landscape dominate the land between houses, for this project, the architects wanted to preserve that natural and built relationship.  Working within the confines of a small site, the design of the stacked villas creates separate private gardens for each of the homes.  And, their orientation toward the river provides great views to the users.  Inside, the layout is simple and efficient, shaped to meet the landscape of the exterior.
