Extension of a Single Family House in Trondheim, Norway

Extension of a single family house in Trondheim, Norway (1)

Arne Garborgsveg 18 is an extension of a single family house completed in 2014 by Tyin Tegnestue Architects. The house is located in Trondheim, Norway.

Description by Tyin: This project is the result of our first attempt at commercial architecture in the Norwegian setting, and thus a learning experience. It is the first time of working with detail in accordance to building code and regulations on Norwegian soil. This resulted in 30 cm thick walls and roofs half a meter in thickness. The project is an addition to a single-family house, in this case home to a family of four. The family wanted to expand their living space. In keeping with the methods adopted in the international setting, we assumed total entrepreneurship over this building process. In taking total control over the process, one also accepts total responsibility. The risk increases, not in the least financially.

On the ground floor the project created a spacious entry area with a combined bath- and laundry-room. The second floor of the addition adds a new multi-purpose room with a high ceiling. This constitutes a break with the monotonous section common to this type of house from the 1950s. The distribution of functions, answering to different needs, contributes to the particular shape of this addition. The house stands out in an otherwise very traditional Norwegian neighbourhood. It challenges the boundaries for what is acceptable within building norms. The feedback from the local area has been on both ends of the scale, ranging from positivity to skepticism.

The facade is cladded with naturally treated pine, the same environmentally friendly material used previously on our boathouse project. For the interiors of the addition, we decided to use Norwegian plywood from birch, with visible bolts and simple details. This project confirmed the notion that a close commitment to a project is a key factor in achieving the desired result. It also prooves that the method we have learned and used in the international setting has relevance in Norway. Visit Tyin Tegnestue Architects
