Troll Forest Visitor Centre
The project constitutes a robust architectural solution that strengthens the natural landscape of the Troll Forest. The Visitor Centre is designed as a light pavilion that can be used in different ways in terms of number of visits and seasons. The relationships between outdoor spaces are shaped so that it can be adapted dynamically depending on the climate and needs. There is also a great emphasis on providing a simple plan for the main function zones so that the different activities merge and create a multifunctional space. The building also aims at a high-energy efficiency performance by using low embodied energy materials and optimizing the buildings shape and glazing to filter the solar radiance received throughout the year.
