House in Bregneveien
The plot is placed in a quiet suburban neighborhood at the southwest of Tromsøya, with a beautiful view overlooking Kvaløysletta and its mountains behind. The entrance of the house is placed on the intermediate level, where the bedrooms and recreational rooms take place. The lower level is dedicated to smaller rental apartments. The beauties of the surrounding landscape are best visible from the top floor, where the living room and the kitchen find their separate spaces, organized around a structural and functional volume. The entire building is covered by a pitched roof with double inclination, to better harmonize with the neighboring houses. The mass of the top floor is modeled through subtractions; at the south, the wall bends to allow the roof to be lowered and aligned with the one of the neighboring house, while at north it opens up for a small terrace in the direction of the best views.
