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.
Architect and history
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. In 1974 it was given to the Norwegian government.
The villa was home to numerous works from Rolf Stenersen's art collection. On display now are contemporary artworks on loan from the private collection of Sten Stenersen jr..
Public tours in Norwegian/English on Sundays at 1 pm, 2 pm and 3 pm in the summer season.
