This original wooden house located in a suburb of Oslo, Norway would be practically invisible against the backdrop of the natural landscape, but it looks very bright thanks to its red façade. The house was built on the sloping site, perpendicularly to a little river, which is observed from the windows. The decision to stain a wooden facade of the house in red color was made by the owner, who said that this way the house will be express his preferences and character. However, in the interior design were used hues of light neutral colors. Authors of this bright two-story house are the architects of JVA.

Norway is known as Northern severe country but there are so many fascinating views there giving a look to which you will instantly remind of crispy blue fjords, rock formations and windswept trees. I want to attract your attention by a breathtaking house in Haugesund overlooking a stunning fjord. The Gunderson House is a project done by Widjedal Racki Bergerhoff Architects. The house offers beautiful views through big windows over the bay. An original house was situated on the southern part of the plot, with a cramped up sunny patio, without benefiting from the site scenic views and coastal location. The interior design of this residence is contemporary yet warm and welcoming. It combines various materials with bold and subdued colors, like the red and black kitchen and the light colored living room; the minimalist dining table and its colorful eclectic rug; the wooden ceiling, glass walls and stone fireplace. One of the most delightful features is the beautiful roof covered patio with its open fireplace and heated pool. Finding yourself in the Gunderson house you’ll be fascinated by a friendly atmosphere created by architects and designers.
