The house is situated on the edge of a steep slope overlooking the fjord, closing the house of towards the road at the rear.The living areas of the house are laid out like an open terrace stretching out for the view and the evening-sun. The studio space is more cubic and introvert, diagonally orientated in plan and section along a more restricted light-axis, adjusted to a concentrated work situation.
