TYIN tegnestue architects debut their first international structure in norway, the arne garborg addition to a single family house. in adherence to local building codes, the walls gain a robust 30 cm and the roof half a meter thick- easily controlled by the studio as they took over every aspect of the design and build. the new construction creates a new spacious entry with a combined laundry and bathroom. as the wooden structure grows in elevation it also gradually breaks away from the host building before wrapping back around to enclose the space. this creates a larger ceiling plenum over a multifunctional loft. apertures of varying sizes dot the exterior pine-clad envelope either providing light or specific views from different parts of the interior. the extension also stands as a challenge to the existing vernacular, pushing the boundaries of the allowable building forms in the area- a design move that has warranted both praise and skepticism within the community.
