Villa Vatnan | Nordic — Office of Architecture
This stunning family home located in Trondheim, Norway has been designed by Nordic — Office of Architecture. Based in Oslo, but with offices in Copenhagen and London, Nordic are involved in projects across the world.
One of the group's recent Scandinavian projects was the majestic Villa Vatnan. Perched on top of a hill, the bold, striking design of this house creates a feeling of open space in which natural light is an important part of the interior experience.
The Nordic group's objectives were to create a bold, modern design that maintained an unobtrusive and understated demeanour. The contrast between the stark concrete of the interior walls, and the soft wood features strikes this balance beautifully.
The house is arranged over two floors, with all main living spaces located on the top floor, to take advantage of the 360 degree aspect of the villa's location. Floor to ceiling windows allow the natural light to flood in, and showcase the true beauty of the spectacular landscape.
