Old wooden buildings

21. May 2017 KL. 11:00 - 16:00

On Sunday, 21 May, join us for a day themed on the preservation of Breidablikk’s buildings. This is a golden opportunity to learn more about Stavanger’s unique wooden buildings and to get useful tips on how to preserve old houses.

Stavanger is known as Trehusbyen (‘the city of wooden houses’). Its approximately 8,000 such buildings mean that its concentration of wooden houses is the largest in Europe. These are an important tourist attraction and part of our local environment. Which building styles are represented in the neighbourhoods close to the city centre, and why is it so important to preserve the old buildings?

Many homeowners in Stavanger live in old houses and have a desire to restore them to the way they once looked. On 21 May, you can get good advice on renovation and rehabilitation and familiarise yourself with the aesthetic guidelines applying to all buildings located inside the zone the municipality has defined as Trehusbyen. The museum’s craftsmen have years of experience and are eager to inform and inspire you. Feel free to bring a photo of your house if you have specific questions!

This Sunday we also offer guided tours of Breidablikk, focusing on the ongoing restoration of this beautiful villa from 1881.
