From the architect. Tjønneland ++ ( all Architects MNAL)

The key notion of the architectural strategy is the location's natural features and the use of a limited material palette. The project is situated in an old "culturscape" and special attention is paid to integrate it into its surroundings. The design is based on simple geometrical prisms, lines and slabs composed into a complex lay-out of rooms and functions. Critical functions and lines of communication are emphasised and the building expresses a balance of functional efficiency and open perspectives.

With havin so much content and articles do you ever
run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being stolen? I'd
really appreciate it.

Me again..I just wonder why did they leave these two columns at the front..I think it destroys a bit the idea of the big cantiliver...30 more centimeters of facade and they would have been hidden....but I suppose they wanted some ugly stuff to make the rest more beautiful..anyway..good work

If you look at the sketch, the coloumns seem to have been supposed to hold a terrace, that again would underline the 1st floor that now is invisible. I personally think that it is less balanced now, than if that line had been underscored more like in the sketches. Seems to be an issue of not precice enough sketchwork/testing.

Nice, i like brutal buldings with floating programmatic boxes in the space....
Good work
