Tyin Tegnestue Architects
Emerging Norwegian firm TYIN Tegnestue is led by Yashar Hanstad and Andreas G Gjertsen, who set up their studio in 2008 in Trondheim. The small but inventive firm was selected in 2013 to be part of the biannual ’Under 40: Young Norwegian Architecture’ exhibition at the National Museum of Art in Oslo and has gone from strength to strength ever since. It has worked on a range of projects, from housing to a training facility for cinnamon farmers, the Cassia Co-op Training Centre, in Sumatra. ’It’s the project that encapsulates most of our inspirations,’ say the architects. ’It is the coming together of all the things we experienced in Asia coupled with the understanding we brought from Norway.’ The firm’s residential work is powerful too and includes the recent private house extension on Arne Garborgsveg 18, Trondheim.
