"Mellomveien 130 - Kirsten Sands bolig" (2 of 5)
Kirsten Sand wanted to improve women's working conditions and she put great emphasis on the kitchen as both an efficient workspace and meeting place. She was critical of the contemporary idea that the kitchen was a laboratory and she regarded this as an attempt to save space that isolated women from the rest of the household. In her own house she opened the kitchen up to the living area and introduced the concept of the open plan, which was a very radical move in Northern Norway at that time. The house still has many efficient and space saving details.
