The project is part of an 8 block / 900 unit development named Sørenga in the harbor area of Oslo. The Sørenga project is located at its own peninsula, and is part of the large Bjørvika development, that also includes the New Norwegian Opera building.

Plan

The site was used for harbor activities which is now relocated. A master plan by LPO Architects calls for 900 units divided into 8 blocks. Four different groups of architects have been chosen to design the individual blocks.

Block 3 is located at the east side of the peninsula. The specific set‐back rules for the development has been utilized to make a terraced and highly sculptured volumetric composition that provides for optimized sun and view conditions for all the apartments. Most of the roof area will be used for terrace purposes. The building is a traditional block structure with a clear outside and inside. The kinder garden is expressed as its own corner volume. Block 3 is about 14.500 m2 which includes 127 apartments, a kinder garden, a small commercial space and parking areas.

The four collaborating architectural teams have agreed upon using a common main material for the facades; a dark bluish brick, with a reflective surface. The courtyard side of block 3 is clad in seawater resistant aluminum panels.
