Overlooking the city of Oslo from the Holmenkollen-hills, Villa Gruppo is a cluster involving three separate family units. The volumes of these units reflect the topography of the site. Where the altitude and the closeness to nature are the main considerations. Placement of the terraced volumes makes it airy and brings the forest-floor into the atrium.
The material palette reinforces the intimacy of the relationship between architecture and surroundings, with walls finished in silvered pine, whitewashed bricks and decks made from slate. The roof is covered with colorful lush plants.
