Town House, Oslo, Norway

Town House, Oslo, Norway

Client: Private homeowner
Architect: K Jarmund Architects
Type of works: supply of SSQ Riverstone® architectural stone.

Set in a leafy, residential suburb of Oslo, the interior of this listed, two-storey town house has been transformed during a refurbishment that’s made much use of natural materials to provide an ultra-modern look that’s as practical as it is stunning.

The property benefited from a large, deep basement: converting this into a sumptuous living room allowed the building’s internal layout to be drastically reconfigured to make use of its new-found spaciousness.

Just over 144m2 of SSQ Riverstone architectural stone from the Natural Split and Honed ranges were used in the project. Each piece was individually cut to meet a detailed cutting list; the order being ready for dispatch within just three weeks of it being received. Once in place the stone creates a number of head-turning features including a wide stairway with an integral, stepped seating area on one side that cascades into the basement living room bringing with it light and space. In each of the three bathrooms, subtle lighting highlights the rich colours and natural beauty of the floor and wall tiles.

A spokesperson for K Jarmund Architects said: “I’ve specified Riverstone architectural stone on previous occasions so have no doubts about the ‘wow-factor’ it offers. The colour and texture of the stone complements the other natural materials perfectly. It’s a beautiful stone to work with and I’ll definitely use it again on future projects.”
