Description

Villa Stenersen is considered one of the main works of Norwegian modernist architecture. Originally planned as a private home for finance broker and art lover Rolf M. Stenersen and his family, the villa is now a meeting place for the fields of architecture and design.

Architect
Villa Stenersen was designed in 1938 by one of Norway's most renowned architects, Arne Korsmo. Korsmo is known as an internationally oriented architect, and Villa Stenersen is a clear example of how the architect interpreted and applied the international architectural ideas of his time.

Art collection
As well as being a family home, the villa was home to numerous works from Rolf Stenersen's art collection. Today, contemporary artworks on loan from the private collection of Sten Stenersen jr. are displayed in the house.

Guided tours
Guided tours in Norwegian the final Sunday of every month from June to October at 1, 2 and 3 pm. English and German guiding available upon request. Free entrance.
