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.

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

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