Ankeret - Camillo Eitzen House

Ankeret has two functions, housing and commerce. Ankeret, also named Camillo Eitzen House after the norwegian company which first owned it, stands like a massive sculpture, connected to the ground but with an extremely dynamic tiled facade. Projections of half a metre make up the facade, adding to the building an exciting effect of shade and depth. The building is intersected by two passageways, which provide access to the courtyard space shared by the residents and the office workers. External signs of the two different functions of the building are few, the only exception being the projections from the top floors that serve as balconies for the residents.
