A unanimous jury granted the project «Nordisk Lys» winner of the invited planning and architecture competition for the design proposal of «Fjordporten Oslo S»
Fjordporten will have a prominent role in the cityscape with its central location, its volume, height and location as part of the collective hub expanding to Christian Frederik’s square. Bane NOR Eiendom (BNE) has high ambitions for this project and, through the invited competition, wanted to find for Fjordporten a new building expression for the tower that interacts the best with the surroundings, provides good conditions for implementation while ensuring high architectural qualities.
The jury’s assessment is that the «Nordisk Lys» proposal best responds to the program’s challenges. The project shows a good understanding of the task’s many premises and a willingness and enthusiasm to find solutions through good and sustainable architecture. The jury believes the proposal has a concept that shows a suitable approach, is robust enough to withstand the necessary adjustments and that the project could be strengthened through this work.
The winning team behind the project «Nordisk Lys» consists of Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter AS in collaboration with C.F Møller Arkitekter, Bollinger + Grohmann Ingenieure, Baugrundinstitut Franke-Meißner und Partner, GMBH and Transsolar Climate Engineering
