About Morten PR Russell Wedén
I was born 1947, and trained as graphic designer in London, worked as designer, writer and film critic in Norway. Stayed with my family in Italy and South Africa for some years and then took early retirement. I am now enjoying traveling and working with real estate development. When this Oslo property is rented out, I myself usually stay in an other apartment below. This means I am seldom far away should you need any assistance.
Morten PR Russell Wedén purchased this apartment in 1987
Why Morten PR Russell Wedén chose Oslo
The house sits high on a hill overlooking a lovely park. I was always attracted to this house and area for many years. Then came the opportunity to purchase. When I bought the apartment more than 25 years ago, I immediately connected to it. I felt I was 'home'. It is always like that with homes; it’s either love at first sight or there is no connection at all. This apartment is a perfect shelter, a place where you can relax completely. You image you are in the country, yet you are in the middle of a city. My three sons have grown up here. Recently the facade went through a major restoration and most of the original details are in place. This apartment still has the original lay out, and although it has modern appliances throughout, it has hardly been altered since it was built in 1897. It is filled with lots of artefacts, prints, sculptures and antiques.
What makes this apartment unique
Through the years I have introduced some architectual salvage into the apartment; intarsia doors for wardrobe, old glass stained windows for kitchen cupboard among other things. These items do not contrast, but complement the apartment, so does the comprehensive library, consisting mainly of English books. One guest even complained that he couldn’t get himself out of the apartment enough because he got so engrossed in the books! But you don’t really have to go very far; on a sunny afternoon a stay on the veranda is total bliss... And in the morning you can bring your coffee with you out on the other side. In winter you can enjoy a drink in front of the roaring fire in the living room.
I can never see myself giving this apartment up for another.
