The White House in Norway is a Study in Simplicity

The White House in Norway was designed by the Oslo-based Jarmund/Vigsnaes architectural firm. The keywords here are simple, clean and modern.

The two-level White House is perhaps a polar opposite from the ornate capitol of the same name in the states. The bottom floor of Jarmund/Vigsnaes’ design is concrete, with the top floor constructed with oak. The design is a compilation of wood panels, glass and concrete. The home is in a suburban area in Norway, near the Oslo fjord.
