Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
On the south west coast of Bergen, Norway, architect Todd Saunders had designed a beautifully minimalist home design, Villa G, it’s a white landmark in the soft landscape at Hjellestad. The house has a futuristic form but is built with traditional Nordic materials and architectural elements with a good basis in Norwegian building methods.
A good collaboration between client and architect made the whole project into a perfect one. The architect liked the larger lines while the client was a perfectionist in regards to the details. The process was very symbiotic. All parts of the house were a fruitful discussion between the architect and the client. Like the stair which was developed together after at least 10-12 suggestions that endedup as the final stair. The stair is one solid piece of 1cm thick steel, galvanized with white sand corn making it slip resistant.
When commenting his own experience of the how the design of the house evolved, the owner said: “yes, we had an exact number of how many meters of closets we needed and so on. We have built a few houses before this and have learned from our experiences and mistakes. We knew that we wanted a house with clean lines without any visual noise and clutter.” This is one of the reasons that most of the closets and storage spaces are integrated into, so – called, thick wall – walls that are at least 60-70cm deep.
The kitchen bench is 8 meters long and has plenty of drawers for kitchen equipment and even other things that need to be stored away. None of the electrical outlets are visible and all technology controlled by a main control panel in the kitchen. The client admits that he is a “gadget freak” and the house reflects this part of his personality.
