Text description provided by the architects. 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.
