The advantage of this Corten steel home in Oslo, Norway is the structure's excessively low-maintenance upkeep. In addition, Jarmund/Vigsnæs Architects draw inspiration from the recent surge in popularity of rustic exteriors.

The house is L-shaped, spread over three floors with two rooftop terraces on the first and second. The interior of the Corten steel home is spacious and elongated, featuring an all-around wooden texture. The rustic component of the Corten steel home is present within, as the framework of the staircase boasts the weathered material with thin railings.

Jarmund/Vigsnæs Architects use concrete and plywood for the construction of this residential house, but the most striking component comes from the low-maintenance and budget-friendly rusty facade that makes the building decidedly stand out in the rather architecturally homogeneous neighborhood.
