Polite House

Situated in the residential area of Havstein, this compact single family house is overlooking the fjord and city of Trondheim. The house has a modest and abstract formal character in a neighbourhood with various density and architectural expressions. Regulated minimal distance to adjacent road is maintained by the shifting geometrical shape of the house. The shift also obtains a significant view for a neighbour up the hill. These two obstructions - road and neighbour - gave the house its characteristic form.

The vase-like expression of the house has emerged from minimal details, along with an exterior and interior cladding in white fiber cement panels. Ceilings are in birch plywood and the floor is made in epoxy terrazzo cast on site which gives a warm atmosphere to the interior.
