Don't worry about not getting that many comments. I'm sure this thread gets plenty pageviews, but not everybody comments everytime you update it, wich ofcourse does not mean they didnt enjoy the pics and project info you shared. There is also a policy on scc to keep the threads clean, wich means moderators sometimes delete comments wich dont really add anything to the thread. Like going by everythread in the international section just to post ' thanks for the pics' for instance. Because of this the like button was added recently I guess. So, long story short: we appreciate your effort, keep up the good work.

+1. I always check out Oslo updates, though I rarely comment. Great low-rise architecture!

Yes it must be boring/tiresome to add all these, but I appreciate a condensed version of these projects, even if I have seen the majority in other threads.

No, it's not bad. Most of the info is copied from each projects treads and/or the architect homepages so it don't take much time at all.

Konows gate 67B

Facts | Architects: Solheim + Jacobsen | Location

Konows gate 67B

A proposal to re-develop a old industrial building from the '60s into a modern office and car wash facility The plan includes an extension of the current building mass to the left and upgraded of the roof inot a public park and space for 20 row houses. I think the building itself looks rather bland (both now and after the upgrade), but I like the idea of roof row houses.

Public park to the left, row houses to the right.

A nice and recently taken night panaroma picture of the Sørenga construction site. You can also see the lighten up tower at Tjuvholmen in the distance. Bispevika, as shown on the previous page, will be built to the right of Sørenga - basically between Sørenga and the rest of the city.

Østensjøveien 27

A okay looking office building currently under construction. It's expected to be completed this year.

Facts | Architects: Henning Larsen | Location

Østensjøveien 27

The new headquarters in Oslo is designed in collaboration with NCC Property Development as a modern passive house. The Integrated Energy Design of the building meets the FutureBuilt criteria for climate-neutral building, and the building will thus become one of Norway’s first spearhead projects in green building.

The headquarters situated in Østensjøveien 27 has focus on daylight, spatial layout and sustainable materials. The building integrates the surrounding urban space as a direct part of its spatial qualities while also giving something back by opening up to the city so the in-house activities enrich the surrounding city life.

The building consists of two office units divided into two wings. The wings are connected by a large central panopticon where displaced, cubic meeting rooms stretch out into and fill up the atrium. A staircase winds all the way up through the panopticon providing users with contact and access to the individual floors.

The cafeteria is situated in one end of the panopticon and has direct access to a peaceful south-facing courtyard with large, light hardwood trees letting the light flow down through the tree crowns. A rippling water wall shields the courtyard from the noise and traffic of the city.

Block 8

Facts | Architects: Snøhetta | Location

Block 8

A large re-development of a whole block in Lillestrøm, suburban Oslo. This development have been rather controversial. Originally it was presented as a 12 floor high building with a angular design by LPO. This design met many objections and the developers promised to hold a architectural competition to find a replacement design that everyone cold be happy with. The developer wasn't pleased with any of the design from the competition, and they decided to give the taks of designing a building for the site to Snøhetta instead. Snøhetta have just released two renders, both of the backyard, of their design for the plot. No renders of the frontage towards the street have been released.

Sørengstranda

A recently launched residental development placed centrally on Oslos waterfront. Will consist 212 apartments devided between two blocks, and with commercial space in first floor facing the bay. It's expected to be completed in 2015.
