Gunnar’s House / Huus Og Heim Arkitektur

The house is built in a residential area in the forest in Os i Østerdalen in Norway. The client wanted to preserve as much of the site’s natural character as possible and build a house of wood, based on the traditional 6″ timber frame construction. On the basis of some fixed constraints, such as the level and size of the basement, the terrain falling to the south and that the developer wanted proximity to the forest, the building cantilevers beyond the foundation of both gable walls.
