Vardehaugen is an architectural studio based in Oslo, Norway. We work with a diverse selection of projects and clients, from private houses, to public processes and urban planning. We conduct our services both domestic and abroad, and are currently working on projects in Norway, Scotland, France, Greenland and The United States. We keep a close dialogue with our clients through the design process and take pride in tailoring our projects to the people and places we work with. Every client is different; every place is in some way peculiar and unique. We aim to embrace this in all of our projects.

Norway based architecture studio Vardehaugen has created a series of life-sized project drawings in its own backyard. Inspired by the idea that the "bodily sensation of scale, or the notion of simply walking through a room, cannot be experienced through traditional 3D visualizations or scaled models," the 1:1 models allow for better understandings of dimensions and spatial sequences, even before the projects are built.
