Snow House

When you think of Norway (if you ever have, that is), you would probably think of rocky fjords, cold weather, warm people, and an abundance of very lucrative goods like fish and oil. Most would not think of the architecture or designs of the Scandinavian country.

The Snow Home, as I like to call it, is a sparkling reminder of Norwegian design creativity and exudes a sophisticated simplicity that is very easy on the eye.

Moving away from his traditional design style, Norwegian architect Tommie Wilhelmsen has created an ultra-modern home. He has made clever use of light and space to contrast the stark white interior and the lush green scenery. Sitting on a slightly elevated plot on Vivendelstein 10, Stavanger it has many native admirers that are sure to expand to a global audience soon.

The interior design is ongoing and not quite a finished canvas yet, but with clever use of nature-based products, some form of texture (e.g. wallpaper) and very choice works of art, this snow house will be an exciting home to add to the list of reasons to visit Norway.
