FRIrom – a room for emotion

On the rooftop of St. Olav’s Hospital in Trondheim, Norway, relatives of patients in critical condition can retreat and find peace of mind inside this small structure – the FRIrom.

This beautiful project was developed as a Master thesis at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The FRIrom is a wooden structure insulated internally, it has a wool-covered mattress and a large pillow, where visitors can sit comfortably and contemplate the skylight. By the entrance, a place for coats and shoes, indicate the room is in use ensuring the visitor’s privacy. The peaceful ambiance created by the minimalist interior is complemented by the pretty origami lights.
