Farm House Gamleveien
Date built: 2008
Design: SKAARA Architekter
Farm house Gamleveien
Total cost: approx. 4 mill NOK
Area: approx. 160 m2
The building replaces an old derelict barn, and complies a sheltered court yard together with the existing main building.
It now accommodates a small apartment, sauna/fitness room and a double garage with storage space.
The three pitched roofs represent a new interpretation of the old saddle roof, and gives extra useful space on the upper level.
The two gable-pitches face the magnificent view towards the west horizon. The middle east-oriented pitch opens up towards a steep hillside nearby and gives additional daylight to the rooms on ground-level.
A flybridge connects the upper level for easy access to storage room on the upper level.
The building is constructed with a masonary ground floor base, supplied with natural stone facing, and laminated wooden beams in the roof structure. The gables are clad with timber battens. Roofing material is of wood boards.
The construction is highly insulated in order to reduce energy demands.
All windows are of low energy class best quality to reduce energy costs.
The heat supply is assisted by a heat pump which also reduces energy costs.
The wood facades are painted with environmentally friendly matt ”Falurød” paint which give the building a soft red tone, easily associated with old farm buildings in the region.
The interior materials are a mix of oak flooring, silver varnished wood panels, and some details with natural stone as used in the exterior.
