Green House

Element as Architects

Green House is located within a green stretch of land in the middle of Oslo. The neighboring buildings are characterized by older brick constructions in distinctive colors such as goldenrod, red, beige and green. The idea is to give the green back to the city, both in a symbolic and physical sense. The "living green" will be on the roof garden, on the ground and on the wall facing the neighboring courtyard to the northwest. The other three facades, toward the street and the park, are "symbolic green”. They are made of recycled aluminum and glass with ceramic print pattern that will provide the illusion of looking through the leaves in a tree canopy. The art also helps to solve the functional and technical requirement, like railings on the balconies and noise reduction. Green House consists of 21 apartments, a common roof garden with private plots of land and a small commercial space on ground level.
