The plot is set along a green stretch of land in the middle of Oslo, on a waste ground that runs alongside a pedestrian and cycle path. By completing an unfinished block of buildings, we have replaced an ugly end wall with a newbuild.

On the corner facing Dælenenggata a small space has been set for commercial premises, with the aim stimulating activity at street level.
