Writers Cottage 2 by JarmundVigsns Architects
Writers Cottage 2 is a minimalist house located in Oslo, Norway, designed by Jarmund/Vigsns Architects. This small annex is located in the garden of two professionals in a suburban residential area. The clients wanted a space that would allow them to isolate themselves to focus on their writing and work, while at the same time offering a generous view over the surroundings. Their intention was that the project would work as an alternative to a cottage in the countryside. The project is located at the edge of a north-facing slope towards a railway station, with dense shrubs below and on either side. To maximize the view, the entire north facing facade consists of glass, providing ample natural light for the workspace inside.
