Welcome to open house at Villa Stenersen every Sunday this summer! 
The guided tour at 2:00 pm is in English.

Villa Stenersen was designed by architect Arne Korsmo, and is considered one of the most significant buildings within Norwegian functionalism.  

The house is one of Korsmos most famous works, and was drawn on commission from the art collector Rolf E. Stenersen in 1937-1939. The villa is protected by the National Heritage Board, and a gradual restoration of the house back to original colors and materials is underway. 

Feel free to stop by to play in the garden as well! 

Free entrance
