Reconstruction of a historic house
Telthusbakken is one of Oslo’s oldest streets and originated in the 17th century. It used to be the eastern exit, where factory workers built small wooden houses on a steep terrain. The street is enlisted on the ‘golden list’, protected cultural heritage.
In 2008 Telthusbakken 3 was destroyed in a fire and the design brief was to reconstruct the house according to current regulations. The family house underwent several additions throughout its time, which could allow a new garden house to free the main body of the staircase.
A tidy version of the historic appearance in combination with modern Massive Wood Construction seemed like a plausible proposal. The rebuilding should answer the current living desires, respect rustic street view and comply with fire regulations.
