Rocky road to success for Atelier Oslo

December 2019

The shortlist for 2020 Surface Design Awards, which exemplify creative use of surface materials and lighting, features 39 projects across 14 categories in total, from retail and public buildings to commercial projects and housing, including new categories in public realm and affordable housing for 2020.

Catching the eye of the panel, the stunning House on an Island by Atelier Oslo in Norway was highlighted in the Housing Exterior category for the complimentary design to its rocky surroundings. Paul Priestman, chairman of branding and design agency PriestmanGoode, commented on the “incredibly lightweight look of the design as well as the innovative use of the interior lighting illuminating the exterior of the structure.” In the running in the Housing Interior category, Spain’s Vallirana 47, by architecture and interior design studio Vora, was praised for the clever way in which the floor tiles delineated the space in the different rooms.
