Gjestadtunene is a large housing complex situated in Jessheim, right outside of Oslo. The buildings are facing the nature, communal space in the center, and the sun. It is of great importance that the buildings will be situated as far away from the road as possible. This gives the residents a closer connection to nature and the surrounding landscape. It also creates a more tranquil and friendlier atmosphere in the complex. The buildings will scale down at the end – like the valley with its sloped uneven terrain.
Gross area: 10 800 m2
