The Dikehaugen project is a commentary on contemporary building practices, the aim is to demonstrate (rather than speak of) solutions and thinking which represents an alternative to todays standards. The project aimed at keeping a high standard in planning, materials, construction, and design, with the architect involved and in charge of all aspects of the building process.

The residential building is energy efficient and enviromentally sustainable. The house is compact, but a flexible floor plan allows for much living space, the materials are natural and the construction breathing, the design robust. The building is low-maintenance, the exterior surfaces are unpainted and allowed to age with the weather and indoor surfaces are also untreated wood which do not require surface treatment. The design of the complex, their layout and the building volumes, aims at being distinct, but well tuned to the immediate natural surroundings.

The house is built in wood/ plant-based/ recyclable materials. It has simple and sound solutions and a simple, architectural design aimed at giving the house a long lifespan. The house has limited heated floor space, and somewhat more un-heated multi-use space, which provides a lot of flexibility and also gives opportunities for activities on snowy winters and wet summers. The building binds co2 in its construction. When its life-span ends, the building will produce a minimum of non-recyclable waste. Visit Arkitekt August Schmidt
