open house oslo 2021

sep 2021

Visit the project this weekend:

https://www.openhouseoslo.org/?portfolio=parkkvartalet

Parkkvartalet consists of 3 buildings and is situated next to the Royal Palace in Oslo. Two were built in the 1870s and the third building in the 1950s, designed by the renowned architect Arnstein Arneberg in collaboration with Henning Astrup.

 

On ground floor the buildings are opened up and a continuous open space runs through the buildings with different functions like cafes, restaurant, workplaces and small social meetingpoints. We also established a glasspavilion for relaxation and work. Modern glassconstruction with tensionwires meets the older brick and rendered facades and mirrors different times in history. Glassroofs, small vistas towards Parkveien and the backyards create an exciting and varied environment.
