At one time the billiards-room of an Oslo mansion, this 2-storey apartment now functions as a residence for a young family. Originally built in 1899 and converted to apartments in the 1930’s, this renovation transforms the space to align with the needs of the client’s contemporary lifestyle. Existing walls were demolished and reconfigured to create a generous open kitchen and living area, while skylights and windows placed in the upper level partition walls allow light to filter through the rooms uninterrupted. As a counter to the harsh Scandinavian winters, the interior is painted white as a means to maximize reflected light into the residence.
