Houses in Martinurdalsveg
Martin Urdals Veg is a picturesque suburban street in Tromsø, in one of the highest points of the island, close to the Prestvannet Lake. The sun presence and the climate are both very extreme in Trømso, bringing the project to work on the balance between openness towards the exterior and privacy on the sides facing the surrounding neighbors. The circulation sequence that connects the different levels of the house affects the presence of the large windows, that provide view and light. The whole house has a directionality that enhances the feeling of being connected to the view towards the landscape, framed into the large glass openings of the upper floor.
