Austigard Arkitektur created an impressively intimate house interior arrangement for a residence in Oslo, Norway that allows members of the family to indulge in different activities without outside interference. The space is characterized as open, double-height and entertains a scenic view of the outside treetops.
In order to understand the interior, one needs to tap into spacial awareness and to be cognizant of how elements in architectural structure interact with each other to bring about a certain purpose. As ArchDaily describes, the house interior arrangement "[forms] individual zones in a continuous social situations without [the use of] separate rooms" thanks to a skillful distribution of the kitchen, lounging and library areas.
For extra isolation, the loft is the most intimate zone of the structure, since it is "protected by half-transparent perforated steel panels on each side."
