Contemporary Villa Morild, Norway
Bergen-based design studio Todd Saunders have completed the Villa Morild project. Completed in 2010, the contemporary villa can be found in Norway.
According to the architects: “The contemporary Norwegian property is located on the west coast of Norway, about two hours north of Bergen.
“The clients’ brief was very particular when it came to the live/work spatial relationship. They worked from home, so needed the two functions within the same plot, but they also wanted to keep them as separate as possible.
“The tricky part was that while at home, they didn’t want to see the office and vice versa. Taking his cue from the tight brief and using the restrictions given by the terrain and orientation, as often is the case with projects built outside of an urban environment, Saunders moved forward with the design.
Saunders developed a floor plan with the office on one end and on a raised level, achieving an efficient workspace with no visual contact with the rest of the contemporary Norway house. The living spaces are at ground level and wrap around an internal courtyard which opens up from one side.”
