Ensjø Metro Station
The main challenges of this metro project lie with the transportation requirements associated with the urban development of Ensjø, where the station and the adjoined square are to become the hub of the area. The project seeks to solve a complex urban situation, with a very high structural density, in a clear and distinct way. The user’s ease of navigation within the urban situation and understanding of the metro facilities are decisive for the quality of the area. The project is committed to meeting the traffic requirements of the station, providing a public face to the city, and linking it to the characteristics of Ensjø. The project applies simple solutions to meet the needs of the site, merging all traffic into a comprehensive geometric move, which differentiates itself from the rest of the urban fabric.
The project is a collaboration with Odd Thorsen AS. Illustrations by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter.
