Luxury home – Idunsgate in Oslo by Haptic Architects


London and Oslo-based architectural practice, Haptic Architects, has designed the Idunsgate project. Completed in 2013, the luxury family home is located in Oslo, Norway.

According to the architects: “The apartment is in the top floor of a 19th-century apartment building in central Oslo. Purchasing the loft space above the apartment enabled the client to do a full scale refurbishment of the loft, bringing the two floors into one, unified space.


“Through a thorough three-dimensional survey of the apartment and careful assessment of the means of escape, we were able to incorporate every nook and cranny and even part of the stairwell into the interior design.

“By fully utilising the level changes and opportunities we could introduce spatial drama with substantial vertical sight lines. The en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom is organised over three levels by incorporating found spaces. A sunny terrace has a large glass wall that brings evening light deep into the apartment.

“Some loft space has been sacrificed to create a double height space over the living room.”
