Oslo Central Station

Facts: Area: 80,000 m2 | Space Group | Location

Oslo Central Station

Space Group has won the invited competition for the redesign of the Oslo Central Station organised by the developer ROM Eiendom. The ambition
of the 2.9 billion Nkr project is to make the station become one of the most modern public transport hubs in Europe. The Oslo Central Station
project is led by Space Group partner Gro Bonesmo. The 80,000 sq m design includes station facilities, hotel, shopping, offices, conference,
restaurants and an event space.

Oslo Central Station once was the gate to the city from East. The situation with two polarising stations in Oslo is now history and Space Group's
strategy is a natural and delayed architectural response to this. The strong East – West axis has outplayed its role - and is replaced by a North-
South axis, from the forest to the fjord - from the inner city to Bjørvika and the new Opera House. The new station axis neutralises the old
stigmatised division between East and West.

Oslo Central Station belongs to the whole city. The grand move, gathering the station functions in a clear linear structure with a strong
architectural identity makes it visible in the cityscape with recognisable announcement of entrances from North, South and West. Whereas today
all types of shopping, station functions and circulation compete for space and dissolve without the experience of architectural definition – the
ambition is now to liberate and strengthen each individual architectural element with its dedicated functions and give them all a clear connection
to the station axis.

Chokoladefabrikken & St Halvards Gate 20

Facts | Architects: Narud Stokke Wiig | Location

Chokoladefabrikken

Re-development scheme of a former chocolate factory on Oslos east side. The awkward looking box on top of the corner building is there today too, so the biggest changes will be the added infills on each side (see the location link for a comparsion of how the place appears today). Perhaps not the most exciting architecture, but still a much needed upgrade of this neglected part of the city.

Facts | Architects: LPO | Location

Skårer Vest

A large housing development called Skårer Vest. It's marked in yellow on the render beneath. The white building is a extension of that is already there (see location) and the gray buildings are various projects that are currently under construction. No renders have been realesed of the individual buildings as far as I now.

Munch Museum

Our local nimbys, politicians and antiquarians have done everything in their power to try to stop this project, so there is large uncertainty about whether or not it will be built.

Facts | Height:56m | Architects: Juan Herreros Arquitectos + LPO | Location

Munch Museum

This is the winning proposal of the new Munch Museum in Oslo. Architect Juan Herreros in cooperation with Norwegian LPO designed this 56m, 14 floor tall museum which will be located at the harbor front, next to Oslo Opera House.

The proposal, named Lambda was announced as winner of the competition on March 27th 2009, and was finally approved by Oslo City Council
on August 26th. However, the project has received lot of criticism and the final design might look quite different than the current architectural
renderings. You can read a much more detailed description of is architecture and design here.

Thereses Gate 30 & Riverside Housing

Two smaller infills in the city. One is currently under construction while the other one will start later this year.

Facts | Architects: MAD | Location

Thereses Gate 30

@MAD_ark infill project in Theresesgate, Oslo by Kurt:S, on Flickr



--------------------------------

Facts | Architects: Code | Location

Riverside Housing

The site is localized in a transition zone between the block structure of Grünerløkka and the green landscape of the Aker River. The shape of the building is motivated by a desire to create a closure of the block towards the Aker River. The building embraces the nearby building lines and continues these. Some of the corners of the building and transitions are faceted to mute the volume effect and to give the building an independent expression. The largest of the facettes in the south direction, gives space for the canopy of an old beech.

The Teachers House - Smykkeskrinet

A older projects that was completed before I made this tread and have been featured at Archdaily.com.

Facts | Architects: Element | Location

The Teachers House - Smykkeskrinet

Smykkeskrinet is characterized by its strong spatial qualities, a wide, slack staircase along the facade functioning as the main vertical venue for mingling, and the artistically enhanced onramental facade.

Element was the winner among three invitees competing for utdanningsforbundets new conference center. Emphasis was put on an innovative facade expression and clear organization of functions. The conference center is an extension to Utdanningsforbundets existing office building in the same block, but is separated as its own unit and functions as a new "portal" to the organization.* The facade toward the street conveys Utdanningsforbundets role and responsibility to education represented by reflective letters and symbols. The carrying structure for the facade is of glass fins developed in collaboration wiht Skandinaviska Glassystem AB in Sweden. In addition to functioning as an esthetical element, the facade also acts as a sunscreen to attain good U-factors and at the same time avoid a reflective glass appearance. The project is designed with a heat pump as one of many ecological measures. Plan- og bygningetaten in Oslo has stated that Smykkeskrinet is a key project for Hausmannskvartalene when it comes to adaptation and modern architecture.

Bøler Church

Another older project.

Facts | Architects: Hansen-Bjørndal | Location

Bøler Church

The new Bøler church is the result of an open architectural competition in 2004. The church stretches across a falling terrain, with the main functions either elevated on a plateau (church hall), on ground level (congregation hall) or dug into the ground (chapel).

A sheltering side wing of brick protects the functions from the traffic and the raised rail tracks to the east. The church patio is reached through a gateway, and opens up to the surrounding nature.The main church hall is entered through an anteroom, and the ceiling lifts towards the far wall.
The glazed areas of the sidewalls give glimpses of the nature outside and the shifting seasons.The main spaces are oriented vertically and connected by a processional axis. Administrative and support functions are located in the side wings.

There is a parish kindergarten and a youth club in the lower level.The main roof structure is steel, supported by concrete columns and concealed by a timber ceiling inside, and copper cladding on the outside. The side wings are load bearing brick carrying insitu concrete slabs. The flat roofs have a green sedum covering.

Trondheimsveien 25

Facts | Architects: Hille-Melbye | Location

Trondheimsveien 25

160 new student apartments is currently under construction in Trondheismveien 25. The project wil also include upgrading the bcakyard of the whole block into "park standard".



From what I understand, then the facade will be built with the same material and have a very similar expression to this infill by the same architecture firm. It remains to be seen how well this expression translate onto this much larger project.

Portalen

Facts | LPO | Location

Portalen

Proposal to build two 11 floor hotels with an apartment building in between on the site of what is today a parking lot in Lillestrøm, a suburb of Oslo. It's worth nothing that these renders only show a 10 floor building - the developers decided to increase the size of their proposal after these renders were made. The plan was on hearing till 13. of mars.

Bispevika

Facts | Area: 34.011 m2 | Architects: Tegnestuen Vandkunsten | Location

Bispevika

The site is unique, located right on the Oslo fjord with fantastic vistas and recreational values, at the same time an ultra-close location to the urban center. The entire area is developing rapidly and expanded with great momentum and a very intense density. The new opera is a major architectural and urban manifestation. It is characteristic of the skerries, the intermediary transitions - from the open sea to the very calm inland waters down to the little rock you can ingest with the feeling that no one has ever been there before. We want our structure to mime the story and create a hierarchy of transitions, both spatially and socially. The structure is point houses of varying size and height that twisted and turned so that both spatial tensions arise between the buildings and various opportunities for interaction. Many of the houses relate both to the public promenade and an inner, more sheltered area of ​​water that becomes a significant proportion of dwellings semi-private open space. Construction is expected to start 2013/2014.

Will contain 302 apartments.

Thanks for the comment too. It gets a little bit boring with pretty much no comments at all and just lonely me in this tread, but I guess there are limits to how interesting people find Oslo and its projects to be.

A renovation of a old industrial building that was completed last year, but have just been updated to the architects homepage where I found the pictures.

Facts | Architects: Space group | Location

SIGNAL MEDIAHOUSE

In 2012 Space Group completed the refurbishment of the former industrial building for the textile firm Indigo designed by architects Ove Ekman and Einar Smith and erected from 1896 to 1899. This area along the Akerselva was historically referred to as Ny York due to its explosive development in 1858. Like its sister city today the area reflects a similar transformation towards a district focused on art, architecture and design, including DogA, AHO, KHiO, and Dansens Hus and now OCA.

Signal Mediahus sits next to the Akerselva River in Oslo. The original industrial building dating back to the the 18th century has rich history of uses. Part of the building burned has burned down in the 1980ies. The project, while preserving the historic, inserts a completely new architecture inside the shell of the old. The two correlates while both being clearly architecturally defined.

The Signal Mediahus hosts several film production companies under one large glass roof. The program is organized around a main void that brings light from the glass roof into the deep section of the building. The void is intercepted by crossing stairs and the stairs becomes the social space

The building is planned in both plan and section as one large open space. The architectural solution also gives way to the MEP strategy. The open section gives a natural flow through the building, reduces consumption and minimizes the need for use of ventilation technical installations. The program is organized according to the best use of light, with the cinemas in the bottom, the sound studios in the ground level and the offices and meeting rooms at the top.

Is the building to the right:
