The luminous dome-shaped window, reminiscent of a crystal, which opens up endless possibilities for natural light to flow, plays a pivotal role in transforming the attic space HG-31 in the heart of Oslo into a true architectural gem. This unique renovation project is the result of the joint efforts of the development company Predio and the Ukrainian architectural firm IK-architects. One of the main goals of the project team was to create a functional and cozy space that would allow residents to infuse their personal elements into the interior.

Through carefully thought-out planning, the lower level of the apartment is divided into two main zones: the public zone (with a foyer and a kitchen-living area) and the private zone (with two bedrooms and a bathroom). In the central part of the upper level, there is a mezzanine - a relaxation area and an open terrace, perfect for barbecues and relaxation with incredible views of the city and the fjord. However, the main highlight of the apartment is the polygonal window, which became a key architectural element. Its crystal-like form not only adds uniqueness and sophistication to the space but also allows abundant natural light to enter, giving the living space a distinctive character.

Moreover, this window opens up breathtaking views of the historic part of the city and the modern residential quarter. In the HG-31 project, a strong emphasis was placed on using natural materials such as parquet flooring and wooden decorative elements. These details add warmth and a natural feel to the apartment, as well as unify all the rooms into a single, organic space. This project serves as a shining example of collaboration between two outstanding teams - Predio and IK-architects - who have combined their knowledge and creative talents to create a modern, stylish, and functional living space in the historic heart of Oslo.

This realization is not only a testament to high quality but also an embodiment of the aspiration to improve the quality of life in cities through sustainable development and the enhancement of design and functionality in real estate. Development company Predio focuses on loft conversions in Oslo. The capital's best locations are selected for new developments, and luxury apartments, penthouses and townhouses that are outstanding property investments are built with design, specification and purpose in mind. Predio aims to improve the quality of life in cities through sustainable development, through deep knowledge and experience in residential and commercial real estate development.

The Ukrainian architectural bureau IK-architects has been developing design projects for more than 10 years. Key stylistic trends: Scandinavian design, minimalism, eclectic combination of current styles and trends. IK-architects has been cooperating with Predio for several years. The HG-31 project was created in collaboration between leading Predio architects and IK-architects designers.
