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, Villa Stenersen is now a meeting place for the fields of architecture and design.
The villa was designed by Arne Korsmo, one of Norway's most renowned architects. Villa Stenersen is a clear example of how he interpreted and applied the international architectural ideas of his time.
The villa was home to numerous works from Rolf Stenersen's art collection. Contemporary artworks on loan from the private collection of Sten Stenersen jr. are now on display in the house.
