This cute house near the Langstini Lake is very interesting in many ways. It was designed by Latvian studio NRJA Architecture for two related families that wanted to live together and yet still have some privacy. The house is made up of two independent residences connected by glass hallway on the first floor. The private facilities are upstairs – the windows there are placed in a way to open view to the lake, but hide the inhabitants of both wings from each other. The second floor rests on concrete piles, providing an extensive outdoor space, perfect for a patio or a car park. The most obvious feature that makes this house look inspiring and beautiful, especially in the show, is its bright red facade.

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.
