Schjelderup Trondahl architects bring its latest build to Grimstad, Norway. Dubbed "House Vardåsen," the structure balances practicality with striking features and the contemporary design elements you'd expect to find in a classic Nordic home.

Built within a well-developed residential area overlooking the city, "House Vardåsen" is nestled between existing trees and a rustic gravel road. A slatted wooden facade creates a warm, inviting feel to an otherwise industrial build of concrete, steel, and glass.

Although this is a two-story building, a wheelchair friendly ground floor was the focus of construction. It was largely built to help maximize space on the existing plot of land.
