Leif Grung: Villa Lau Eide, 1935
Leif Grung made this house for his sister and her husband. The house was baptised Villa Lau Eide. A powerful example of Grung’s functionalistic ideas.
This is one of my Grung favourites. It’s situated two houses from where i lived myself. It’s just four houses away from where Leif lived himself (look below) – in the quartier of Bergen called Paradis. Between 1928 and 1945 he designed and raised around 40 Grung houses in this area. His own vision was 200 houses – which his death made impossible.
