        Text description provided by the architects. Støperigaten is a residential apartment building where our aim was to create first rate city dwellings, maximizing qualities such as optimal light conditions, generous ceiling heights, flexibility and common spaces

        The project’s design emerges from a creative interpretation of the zoning plan, which opened for the possibility to design all of the apartments as duplexes with a double high living room. The project has been specifically designed to meet the demands for affordable high-quality residential livingspaces. The sizes and lay-outs of the apartments are flexible in order to meet the changing demands of the residents and all units have a section which can easily be sublet.

        Roof terraces, wide galleries, play grounds and a passage through the area encapsulates the idea of community. Additionally, there is a common area on the ground floor with an exit to the playground on the north side. The space is intended for the residents to use for events such as meetings, birthday parties and workshops.

        The stair cases and the wide galleries on the expressive street façade blur the distinction between public street and building and lead to a roof terrace with spacious common areas. The terrace hovers above the city, offering panoramic views of the ocean. The galleries, all open to the public, are wide enough for the residents to create their private outdoor space adjoining the entrance.

        High-density stratified timber panels are used on the northeast façade. The southwest façade relates to the neighboring traditional single family houses with white weatherboards. All units have a balcony or terrace of massive wood facing southwest.

        Concrete walls, parquet throughout the apartments, floor-integrated heating elements and high-end railings set an exclusive standard in the interiors. Technical floors allow for maximum flexibility.
