Svalbard, Norway is an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean north of mainland Europe, about midway between Norway and the North Pole. This archipelago is the northernmost part of Norway. Three of its islands are populated: Spitsbergen, Bear Island and Hopen. The largest settlement is in Longyearbyen.

This project is an addition to an existing university and research facility, which get extended approximately  four times their original size. The project, which was commissioned through an invited competition, also provides new facilities for the Svalbard Museum. The project became the largest building in Longyearbyen and Spitzbergen.

Located in the costal little town of Nesodden on the eastern side of Norway, the house is built on a site with views towards the sea between the branches of the surrounding pine-forest. The permitted aerial building lines define the plan and even the heights of the roofline.


While the exterior views are singularly framed by the window openings, closely related to individual spaces, the interior is treated in a more fluent way with overlapping sequences of space and light in section and plan. This duality of focal and flow is the theme of the building.
