After spending a fantastic five days in Oslo this summer, I’ve got to admit I’m itching to get back to Norway. And located just a 35-minute train journey away in the city of Drammen a stay at ‘The House’ by design studio Ask og Eng is at the top of my wish list.
Dating back to 1868 and lovingly restored into their family home over the last few years ‘The House’ offers visitors the unique opportunity to experience every aspect of Kine Ask Sternersen and Kristoffer Eng’s beautiful brand for themselves.
It was back in early 2016 after building several sustainably produced bamboo kitchens and furniture pieces for themselves that this talented couple established their workshop. Originally working out of a garage, it’s safe to say it didn’t take long before it took over the whole house, and they become leading names in design across Norway and beyond.
Today Kine and Kristoffer, as well as their two boys, split their time between Drammen and rural Mallorca, meaning this inspirational space is now available for others to enjoy too.
Packed full of authentic features as well as thoughtful details every modern family needs, this pared-back place with its muted colours and natural textures, has a captivating and calming atmosphere.
As you would expect, the heart of ‘The House’ is the open plan living and kitchen space. Complete with its bespoke Ask og Eng kitchen, custom made dining table and low Japanese style seating area.
The muted master bedroom meanwhile has a striking vaulted ceiling with 200-year-old original beams as well as an abundance of soft and cosy textiles along with a main bathroom designed to offer a spa-like experience thanks to its waterfall shower, deep free-standing bathtub and tactile natural stone finishes.
With plenty of space for two adults and up to two children, a stay at ‘The House’ starts from €475 per night.
