A Split-Level Cabin in Norway Is a Cozy Family Hub
Dubbed Stairway to Heaven, the home is located on a family compound in Hellerud, a borough of Oslo, Norway. When the clients approached the local firm Wood Arkitektur + Design in 2010, their goal was to create a place that could easily accommodate family, neighbors, and children wandering in and out.
The staircase connects the kids’ zones in the basement—including a playroom with outdoor access—to a middle level that’s meant for socializing and family dinners. The spaces get more private as the homeowners ascend the stairs, with the upper floor hosting the principal suite and a smaller sitting room.
