Norwegian studio Rever & Drage has completed 1/3 House, a building that one part house and two parts empty space.

The two-storey building is a home for a young, married couple in rural Norway.



As the pair had a limited budget, they could only afford to build a small residence for themselves. But they wanted a building that would be easy to extend when they have a family.

Rever & Drage’s solution was to create the structure of a larger home, but to leave two-thirds of it empty for the time being.

由於這對夫婦的預算有限,他們只能負擔自己建造一個小住宅的費用。 但是他們想要的是一個有家庭的建築物。


“The simple economic concept is that the owners have now built the part that they could afford, while the rest has untapped potential for what life might bring,” explained architects Tom Auger, Martin Beverfjord and Eirik Lilledrange.

“By completely extending the roof at the beginning of the project, they significantly reduce the work for adding space when needed, and they have the area under the roof as a resource in the meantime.”

建築師湯姆·奧格(Tom Auger),馬丁·貝弗弗約德(Martin Beverfjord)和埃里克·利勒德蘭奇(Eirik Lilledrange)解釋說:“簡單的經濟概念是,業主現在已經建造了他們負擔得起的零件,而其餘的零件則為生活帶來了潛力。”


This design also addressed another issue the architects needed to resolve. The husband was keen to create a cosy home, while his wife, who works as a deer hunter, wanted practical spaces for storing guns and butchery equipment.

The sheltered veranda space serves this purpose, without impacting on the comfort of the domestic spaces. It can also be used for various other purposes, such as for hosting parties or as a garage for vehicles.

該設計還解決了架構師需要解決的另一個問題。 丈夫渴望創建一個舒適的家,而他的鹿獵手妻子則希望有實用的空間來存放槍支和屠宰設備。

帶遮蓋的陽台空間可達到此目的,而不會影響家庭空間的舒適性。 它也可以用於其他各種目的,例如用於舉辦聚會或用作車輛的車庫。

Visually, the two sections of the 100-square-metre building are very separate and different in character.

The home is very traditional, with a grid of windows on each facade, while the veranda is more contemporary. Instead of rectilinear openings, its entrances are triangular.


房屋非常傳統,每個立面上都有一扇窗戶,而陽台則更具現代感。 它的入口不是三角形的開口,而是三角形的。

This contrast is emphasised by the cladding material. The more permanent side comprises vertical lengths of wood in a pale brown colour, while the other side features horizontal lengths in a much darker shade.

“Because of the simplistic design, the building appears a little abstract,” said the architects.

包層材料強調了這種對比。 永久性更強的一側包括垂直長度的淺棕色木頭,而另一側則具有水平長度的深色。


“One of the most interesting things about this building is that in the future it may end up resembling a completely traditional local farm house, once all the potential area has been converted,” they continued.

“As such, something that started as an unusual building will gradually develop to become more traditional.”



1/3 House is located in Øksendal, an area in Sunndal overshadowed by mountains. Like many of the buildings in this area, it has a timber frame, but the architects chose glulam wood to make it more structurally efficient.

The current floor plan is designed around a “warm core”. On the ground floor, the kitchen and living room areas surround a laundry room. On the first floor, a bedroom, closet, lounge and TV room are organised around the bathroom.

1/3 House酒店位於森達塔爾州的Øksendal,被山脈所遮蓋。 像該地區的許多建築物一樣,它都有木結構,但建築師選擇了膠合木以提高結構效率。

當前的平面圖是圍繞“溫暖的核心”設計的。 在底樓,廚房和客廳圍繞洗衣房。 在二樓,浴室周圍設有一間臥室,壁櫥,休息室和電視室。

Rever & Drage has offices in Oslo and Flekkefjord. Previous projects include a cabin with a retractable roof and a hillside house overlooking a fjord.

Rever&Drage在奧斯陸和Flekkefjord設有辦事處。 先前的項目包括帶有可伸縮屋頂的小屋和俯瞰峽灣的山坡房屋。
