  • Fun facts about FORDYPNINGSROMMET

    We bought the first estate in the arctic archipelago of in 2004, then we dug with spoons and forks the first years before we met Yashar & Andreas from TYIN architects in 2013 ,who immediately introduced us for their need for prof. Sami Rintala from RintalaEggertson arch. as a mentor. Which where totally perfect for us. Suddenly we had the two most published architect offices in Norway in our team. After ideas thrown forth and back, we started in august 2014 with a workshop for architect students, and after  six workshops with students from all over the world and two years of building process led by multiskilled architects and designers Andrew Devine & Ruben Stranger, we now have nine small houses on two estates. Let´s see if it stops there…

    Total cost: 8 mill NOK
