Can a Modern House Be Kid-Friendly?

If your answer to that question is no, then perhaps you haven’t seen this modern house in Bergen, Norway. The architect, Todd Saunders, and the client collaborated to create a home that was as beautiful as it was livable.

Saunders say, "the client is very intelligent and has a acute interest in architecture. He challenged us the whole time, but never can got in the way of out design process. The family has documented their wants and needs. These clear and concise wishes help us come of with simple design principles for the project.”

The owner says, “Yes, we had an exact number of how many meters of closets we needed and so on. We have built a few houses before this and have learned from our experiences and mistakes. We knew that we wanted a house with clean lines without any visual noise and clutter.”

From the integrated storage spaces to the slip resistant staircase made of one solid piece of 1cm thick steel, no detail was left undone. Coolest part? None of the electrical outlets are visible and all technology controlled by a main control panel in the kitchen. The house is geektastic!

What do you think of this house? Could you and your family live here?
