​​Our Norwegian clients needed to connect two traditional wooden houses in Oslo. Rather than make a solid connection our London-based architect designed a glazed conservatory link offering the owners the possibility of living under glass all year round.​

 

During the design phase the local Norwegian engineer specified that the glazed roof structure should withstand a snow load of 240 kg snow/m2, which is exceptionally high. This was beautifully and elegantly resolved by our supplier concealing a structural steel frame inside the handmade hardwood profiles – an exceptional example of fine creative joinery.
