That explain something. I thought I had read the comment before, but I only found his when tried to search.

I disagree with you btw. I think Barcode turned out great due to it's urban and dense feeling that is almost unheard of elsewhere in the city. I would guess that they had put they buildings farer apart if they had gone higher. That would have ruined it imho.

The 21 floor building should be about 67m tall. Its a residential building, thats why more floors into the same height as DnB NOR Bygg A (67m and 17 floors) as an example.

And they would not have to put the buildings further away from each other if 2 or 3 buildings were to be 100m or close to. I think it would have been great to have a bit more variety in height, with some up to 100m. It would just have felt more urban and dense.

That's impressively low.

Put it this way: If more height had mean buildings farer apart then I'm against it, if it wouldn't then I'm not. If that makes any sense.

I still think we should put our tallest buildings at the back though. I only wish we get more of them ...

Even before Barcodeplan PBE worked on a concept with 100m buildings set back from the street, but with traditional city blocks facing the street.

Normal floor height for residential and hotels is 3,5m per floor, but 4m for offices. Sure it would be great to locate towers further into the city due to topography, but it is here the infrastructure is at it's best. Helsfyr could also host some taller buildings due to decent bus and metro coverage and location higher in the terrain...

When I said at the back or longer in the city, I was more thinking of Scweeigardsgate, Grĝnland and possible above the tracks at Oslo S in the future. I wouldn't say the infrastructure is any worse there ...

Then it doesn't matter, does it? Since they would block the amfitheatre just as much these do

I think you have misunderstood me. I don't care about blocking the city, allthough I think we should try to keep natural "bridge" between the low blocks and the highrises in form of somewhat gradually increase in the heights of the buildings.

I only feared they would have made plazas and parks everywhere if they had build Barcode higher, and then the urban feeling would have been lost. I have nothing against high buildings elsewhere as long as they have a well-thought of design.

The original Barcode was just as urban and dense as it is today, but with two 100m tall buildings. So OperaKvarteret could have been taller! But don't get me wrong, OperaKvarteret is the probably the coolest and most urban projects in Norway ever!

The last building to be completed in OperaKvarteret is the easternmost building, a tiny 8 floor tall residential building. Don't have much info or renderings yet, but this is how it looks like. Designed by a-lab.

First page of this thread has also been completely renewed.

I think it looks just weird. Like a modern art project. I hope it will grow on me though. The design is final?

its not the final design since its still some years to construction starts, but don't expect it to look far from that.

At least it something different then. Do you know how it will looks like on the backside (the side facing the rest of barcode)? I couldn't even locate the building on A-labs homepage.

the project is still only available on some Oslo kommune pdf document, here.

Not many details yet, this describe the look of the building the best.

March 16th updates

Took a stroll through the projects this afternoon, thought I'd share with you a few pics of the recent developments!
















Can't wait until they start work on Isfjellet, do we know when further construction is set to begin? Also noticed construction of the third concrete tower on DnbNor B. They're also pouring concrete on the base of MAD.

Great day in Oslo!

Great pictures, although slightly on the small side. You don't have them in bigger resolutions?

Not sure what I look most forward to. Stands between Isfjellet, Mad or Darks DnB Nor building.
