White and delicious. Sky High ceilings with soaring walls and windows opening up to the great world. Well executed craftsmanship, and materials selected from the top shelf. In the middle of Oslo, is an uncompromising white cube. The loft on Fagerborg includes what housing agents call a rare occasioning. There are no unsightly beams in their way, either visually or practical. And unlike in many other loft-conversions, one must not stand on tiptoes to reach the outside world through peepholes that only let in some light, but does not provide an overview of what's happening on ground level. Top floor and attic has now become one, and it's all about the big white room, a white cube, as it is called in the art world, without being in any way square… view interior featurePin It Now!

Undisputedly modern, this sleek apartment captures the essence of open plan, 21st century living… view interior feature
