I really do not like that building. The facade looks so extremely cheap and boring, and the shape feels a little bit gimmicky and will probably date incredible fast. Not my thing ...

Longva arkitekter completes new training facilites for the Norwegian navy

The brief for this project was to design a new training facility for the Norwegian Navy. The building has a complex program with facilities that must accommodate both specialised marine training and general amenities for the 5,000 employees who work daily in the camp. Facilities include a swimming pool, multi-purpose hall, various group and strength training rooms and a climbing wall, as well as changing rooms and offices for the employees. Outside amenities include a running track, football pitch, obstacle course and jetties for assault training.

The full-height foyer is the building’s social heart and connects the various amenities together, both visually and functionally. The new building is placed in an underused part of the naval camp. One of the most important design tasks was to delimitate this site and create a place of value from this residual area. The building is positioned on the shore edge to frame the training landscape and to define a clear boundary for the camp. This placement also gives it a direct relationship to the sea.

The architectural expression relates to the existing camp buildings, which are primarily built in the modern tradition. The large volume is modulated both in plan and elevation to break down the scale. The façade is mostly clad with white polymer composite panels mounted in an abstracted shell motif, which gives lightness to the large, windowless walls. Exposed and untreated concrete, brick, unglazed tiles and oiled wood are used extensively in the interior.

There has been special focus on creating a robust building with solid, maintenance-free and natural materials that can withstand both the aggressive shore side environment and aggressive use by the marines. The building is designed to have a very low energy consumption, and is qualified for Norway’s best energy rating. Heating is supplied by a seawater heat pump. Since the building was taken into use in 2011 physical training in the camp has increased 500%.

Selvika / Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

Architects: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter
Location: Havøysund, Norway
Project Year: 2012
Project Area: 10.0 sqm
Photographs: Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter

The initial approach was to single out and magnify the experience of walking from the roadside down to the seaside at this very special place. Therefore a main concern was to slow down this movement and make the path itself a means of refocusing the experiential mode: a measured, restrained approach that creates awareness.

The monolithic structure in concrete is developed with a clear geometric strategy based on a study of organic circular organisms. The project contains a series of various functions such as parking, bike shed, public toilets, benches, open kitchen and fireplace.

Furthermore a functional concern has been on universal accessibility. Instead of opting for a dual solution with staircase and ramp, we came up with the notion of making the ramp the common entryway and develop it into the integral character of the project. Because of the inclination of the site, and in order to create the reductive motion, the ramp had to be very long. The winding river of the path prolongs the approach and in so doing opens up new perspectives and experiences for the visitor.

Located in the extreme north of Norway, in a landscape almost lunar in its barren and inhospitable beauty, the facility should ideally be completely self-sustainable in terms of power input and waste output. The general notion was to create a human detail in the vastness of the landscape that is as timeless as the landscape itself and that brings attention to the relationship between the duration of experiences and the hugeness of the spatial circumstance.

The shape is okay, shame about the use of concrete though. Will look ugly in no time.

Gurisentret Outdoor Stage and Visitor Centre / Askim/Lantto Architects

Architects: Askim/Lantto Architects
Location: The Edøy Island, Smøla, Norway
Project Leader: Niels Marius Askim
Project Year: 2008
Photographs: Courtesy of Kvernberget Print og Reklame AS, Niels Marius Askim, Bjarne Ytrøy
Project Area: 620.0 sqm
Collaborators: Hans Guttormsgaard/Anne – Ki Thoresen

This centre was developed for the historical play ”Gurispelet”, situated on medival Edøy. It also gives room for different cultural events such as concerts, plays and movieshows.

The centre is cut into a sandy hill, on the edge of an agricultural landscape which includes an eighthundred year old church. The new amphitheatre shields the stage from the quayside.

To maintain possible movement in the landskape adjasent to centre, a roof terrace has been formed over the visitorcentre as an extention to the surronding farmlandscape.

The roofterrace creates a good viewingplatform for surrounding landscape.

The entire structure is done in timber, partly as solid wood construction.

3XN provides crystalline cultural centre for city of Molde's annual influx of jazz-lovers

The Norwegian city of Molde has just 25,000 inhabitants, but every July the biggest stars of jazz and about 100,000 jazz enthusiasts flock to the town's world famous international jazz festival. In designing the city's new cultural centre, the challenge faced by 3XN was to create a building that was flexible and robust enough to provide a framework for cultural life on both scales.

"There must be room for celebration in this building, both inside, on top of it and around it. And it must be able to withstand being invaded by happy people throughout the year - year after year”, says Head of Competition and Partner of 3XN, Jan Ammundsen about the Danish architectural practice’s most recently completed project, ‘Plassen’.

Located in the city center and overlooking both the fjord and the mountains, the ‘Plassen’ cultural centre is an obvious meeting point. With an optimal use of every square meter, 3XN has created a building that can function both when a hundred and 100,000 people gather for concerts, festivals or theatre.

The architectural solution is a structure where almost all surfaces and spaces have more than one function. Together with the building’s roof, an existing staircase next to the building constitute a total of three outdoor amphitheatres that collectively accommodate several thousand spectators. During the day the roof offers a café with outdoor seating, a recreational area with splendid views and exhibition space for the building's gallery; while the staircase on the side of the building is an essential link between the city's upper and lower districts.

"Plassen is a compact and chaste construction, but by giving the shape a number of breaches, we have created a diversity in its expression, which means that it is flexible and roomy, without seeming very big," explains Jan Ammundsen, who has emphasized that the building of nearly 6000 m2 and three floors should adapt to the relatively small properties located around it.

The same bright granite is used on all exterior surfaces and gives the building a bright monochrome expression that in the evening is contrasted by a warm red light coming from the heart of the building - the concert hall - around which other features, such as a library, café, exhibition space and performance areas are distributed. The warm colour scheme of the interior combined with the solid hardwood floors and plenty of natural light result in a friendly and informal environment, which together with the many entrances make the building seem inviting and accessible to all.

Renzo Piano Building Workshop creates an addition to the Tjuvholmen development

The Tjuvholmen development commissioned by Selvaag Gruppen / Aspelin Ramm Gruppen in Oslo is located southwest of the centre of the city and is a continuation of the Aker Brygge development built in the 90's. The project will transform the formerly closed harbor into a public area connecting the Fjord and the centre of the city.

The recently completed RPBW project is on the western part of this development and consists of 3 different buildings under a unique glass roof: one for Offices and Art exhibition and two exclusively for the Art Museum and landscape design with bridges over the new canals and a small Sculpture Park.

Overlooking the fjord, it seems inevitable to continue the sightline from the city along the Aker Brygge promenade to the far end of the new development. The entire promenade along the sea will be 800m long with almost half of that length consisting of the new project. The length along the canal will provide visitors the visual contact with the sea and nature.

On Skjaeret, the promenade is embraced by the building complex and the location of the art building along the canal, instead of along the sea as proposed by the city's zoning plan, creates an active dialogue between the 3 buildings.

Between the art museum and the sea a softly undulating sculpture park fills the rest of Skjaeret and finishes in a sandy beach, protected by the wind and from the waves, open for children and their parents to play and swim, to enjoy nature and the sea.

The roof is a curved surface which covers all three buildings to emphasize their interaction as a cultural destination and the architecture of the complex. The geometrical shape is derived from a section of a toroid and it slopes down towards the sea. Some of the exhibition spaces, the museum lobby as well as the office atrium will receive daylight through the roof.

The project will have different kinds of exhibition spaces: visiting the museum will be a cultural journey going from one space to the other. The office building along the Tjuvholmen Allee, has four floors and a mezzanine under the roof.

A naturally lit atrium in the centre of the building connects the office floors. The materials for the new buildings are few in order to emphasize the unity of the complex and are subdued to emphasize the roof as the most important architectural element. The facades have glazed areas on the ground floor where the public view is desired.

You only see the best and most expensive projects here though. The majority of what gets built here is cheap, depressive crap. Just take a look:

... And so on. I agree that what is shown here is for most part nice though.

Galro, you aren't lying, but come on, do you think less crap gets built in most other countries? A majority of countries has more crap than us to be honest. And some countries have entire (almost) cities of empty housing blocks who all look pretty depressive. On a whole nother scale than tiny Norway

With that said - I find it sort of worrying how close to the city center they're willing to build such crap, though. So I guess I don't really disagree that much either, lol..
