Pure Norwegian Box Architecture Jan 11, 2009


Hailing from Oslo, Norway, Rintala Eggertsson Architects created this 19 square meter house. It is essentially living stripped to the minimal requirements. Smart living. Programmed living. The reason this project strikes me as beautiful is mostly because of the material choices. The exterior looks like Leviathan out of the Hellraiser movies and yet the inside is clad with a nice warm wood. The structure is also framed from wood.


Typically in the US and other countries when Architects create minimal dwellings such as this, the cold and harsh materials will continue to the interior, resulting in a house that feels more like a prison than a warm and welcoming home.
