More than a townhouse, this will be an hotel along the E6, removed from B center by a kilometer or so.
Highrises has been proposed in Hamar for a long time and been rejected. I remember i posted news about highrise proposals at Tjuvholmen 14 years ago here on SSC. Two-three proposals have come and gone since then.

That the politicians in Brummundal seemingly approve the project as easy as that doesn't come as a surprise as other towns trying to compete with its bigger nabour(s) isn't a new thing (Molde, Namsos, Straume, Sandnes). Brummundalen isn't exactly known as a pretty town, its a place everybody drives by without stopping or noticing. Approving this landmark will certainly make people remember Brummundal as they drive by and it will drive some of the attention from Hamar and Lillehammer to Brummundal even though the highrise is located off the town center.

Some pictures of the newly completed Voss High School. I think the execution leaves something to be desired, at least when it comes to the exterior.

Here is how it was first visualized:


The final result:

The winning design for the "Varmestue" (I'm not sure what the English expression would be for it; Warming cottage?) at Skomakerdiket at Fl°yen mountain in Bergen.

Nygaardsplassen development in Fredrikstad by MAD arkitekter. Please note that the overview rendering was done before the design was boxified. Still it looks like a nice development.

Plans to restore a historic wooden building to its former "glory" and build two modern buildings next door in Sarpsborg. Looks like a really nice project.

Two out of three (but I could not find any good pictures of the last one) feasibility studies for the development of a station city at Sundvollen as part of the Ringerike bane project.

LPO:


Rejlers and Arkitema:


I would prefer to see a combination of these two with the canals of Rejlers proposal and the closed city blocks of LPOs design. That would be absolutely stunning.

St Maries Gate 30 in Sarpsborg.

A corner building that had first gone through a various modifications like the removal of the original windows, the removal of original plaster details and the removal of the original roof tiles, before it was then struck by a fire that ruined the roof and gutted the top floor. It was then decided to renovate the building back to its original appearance before all those modifications.

Before (but after the fire):


Now (although not completely completed):

A new museum planned in Rjukan.

Rjukan is a small town located in a deep valley beneath the Gaustadtoppen peak in central Norway. It was founded as a company town by Norsk Hydro. Thw Rjukan area grew to become an important part of the Norwegian industrial base during the early 20th century. Two huge power stations were built as part of the industrialization of the valley, with one of them (Vemork) even becoming the worlds largest power station upon completion in 1911. Vemork later become worlds first site for the mass production of heavy mater which lead to the infamous heavy water sabotage campaign (Tungtvannsaksjonen) during ww2.

Rjukans industrial heritage was acknowledged and written inn on the UNESCO world heritage site in 2015. There have been a desire to make the heritage more presentable in relation to that, and the latest step in that development is this new museum that will be dedicated to the heavy water sabotage of ww2. It's planned to be built next to Vermork power station.

Tomorrow:

An old post office building being converted to apartments in Flekkefjord. Not the biggest project mind you but I think it is nice seeing more urban living in the smaller Norwegian towsn/cities too.
