The outbuilding in the yard of Vålerenggata 25 in Oslo was originally built as a stable in 1888, but demolished and rebuilt during the war. The existing structure was therefore of limited antiquarian value, and has been replaced entirely by a new building, intended as a multifunctional extension to a family home.
A concrete retaining wall wraps around a double height space with a mezzanine and large doors towards the garden yard. The façade is in carbonised cedar. Interior built-in furnishings are in birch plywood.
