The Paulus church is architecturally the most advanced church building in Grünerløkka (Oslo is not a city of the churches). It lies adjacent to Birkelunden, also shown on the last page.

Adjacent Grünerløkka, many former industrial sites, originally placed there for water power access, have found other uses:

The college of arts.


Downstream view from the nightclub Blå


The international food hall


Etc...

North of Grünerløkka lies the northernmost boroughs that were allready urbanized at the time of classical predominance in architecture.

I only want to give a few impressions of the distinct, classical architecture of that area.

First, area Torshov:

Gaustad - is a term almost synonymous to "psychiatric hospital" in and even outside of Oslo. It was Oslo`s (and I believe Norways) first sanitarium for the mentally ill.

The horrors that went on inside (lobotomy, isolation, etc.) is somehow mirrored in a certain creepyness to the architecture. Nonetheless, those old buildings are still part of the psychiatric hospital.

Egebergslottet ("the Egeberg palé") was build in 1900 and was the largest single residence / villa in Oslo. In 1930, its interior was rebuild into several apartments. I lies a few blocks north of the city core between the east and the west of the concentric city.

I had a go a few years back at photoshopping demolished or reclad buildings into photos I had taken myself.

I hope you don't mind if I share them on this thread:



This for instance is the commercial building known as Hasselgården on the corner of Torggata. It was completed in 1902 but was reclad into a modern building around the 1970s or so.

Off course not!

Hasselgaarden was shown earlier in the thread, but more photos are good anyhow. If this thread is to have a long life, we can`t have a "one-post-pro-building policy". Besides, if we had, I would hav broken it myself allready.

I`m curious to see what more photos you talked of

Ok, next one is almost from exactly the same spot, but turning around.



At the back are the three lost buildings on Stortorvet (Main Square): Stortorvet 8 (1876), Stortorvet 7 (1878) and Karl Johans gate 15 (1897). The latter was destroyed in a fire in 1959 and the other two were subsequently demolished.



Stortorvet 8 stood at the corner of Grensen.

Another piece of lost, classical architecture; Wergelandsveien 1:

This is how the building looked upon its original completion:

The photo also sjows that the neighboring building to the left was a piece of classical architecture which has nove gone lost.

This is how that building looked after a re-build.


And the same spot now, after tearing and replacing with a different building.

Here's another one that has probably been mentioned already. Drammensveien 2 was destroyed in an air raid during WWII. The disappearance of the cone-shape roof on the corner of Henrik Ibsen gate 4 (1892) has also changed the character of that building. Victoria Terrasse (left) still stands but part of the facade is obscured by the building that replaced Drammensveien 2.



Drammensveien 2 was originally built in 1864 before the area was urbanised but was given a facelift at the end of the century.

The original drawing for it, but it appears to have been redesigned before construction.

Another picture of this building have been found. It's the one located closest on the left.
