The blade house

RNA Rohde Nixdorff Architektur as Architects

The "Blade House" is a design for a villa in Norway. Situated on the banks of the fjord from Larvik, which mediates between the given design and topographical conditions of the conceptual idea of a building that receives its entire structural integrity of a singular element. How do you design a building that is statically linked and infrastructure to only one disk? The "Blade House" internalized this concept by providing a weightless body, which includes the Wohnutzungen the villa, in a "habitable" shear wall hanging, touching at one point the rocky ground. Here flows the infrastructural artery of the building. -The central stairwell. From here, open the draft up to the roof surface and forms the connection to the service areas of the ground floor.
