Terminus / On Office

On Office’s Grand Terminus Hotel in Bergen, Norway is situated next to an exisiting traditional “Heritage” building. For the modern extension, the architects focused on maintaining a relationship with the existing hotel, while also working with sun exposure levels. The triangulated form morphs off the end of existing to become an unique entity that is still tied to its context. The geometric form provides dynamic interior spaces that aim to “establish an intimate relation with the existing small houses in the surroundings.”
