This central Oslo apartment features on the shortlist for the World Interior of the Year award which was announced yesterday.
Designed by London based Haptic Architects, the apartment is located on the top floor of a 19th century building. By purchasing the loft space above the apartment the owners were able to undertake a refurbishment project that allowed them to combine the two floors into one unified space. A floating metal staircase links the different levels and adds spatial drama by introducing striking vertical lines.
Above: The double height en suite bathroom to the master bedroom is arranged over different levels and has an elevated bath and shower area.
Above: The floating steel stair case leads up from the main living area via a section of wooden cabinetry which also provides storage and seating space.
Above: A sunny terrace brings light deep into the apartment.
Above: The walls have been colour matched to the pendant lighting. The use of a dark grey shade, in contrast to the white used elsewhere in the apartment, defines the kitchen area.
