OSLO | Krystallklar (Crystal Clear) | 116m | 29 fl | Pro

Krystallklar (Crystal Clear)
Oslo - Norway

Danish C. F. Mĝller Architects, in collaboration with Norwegian Kristin Jarmund Architects, has won a major competition to design a spectacular
new landmark project in the city of Oslo, for the client KLP AS, one of Norway's largest property investors. The project, which has been dubbed
"Krystallklar" in Norwegian, meaning "Crystal Clear", consists of three towers, which grow organically from the ground to form a sculptural cluster,
and are composed of stacked, prismatic volumes.

The development totals approximately 90,000 sq m of offices, commercial space and possibly housing, located at one of Oslo's most valuable sites,
the former postal sorting office adjacent to the central station. 'Crystal Clear' ties in with the city's skyline, and the string of developing landmark
projects that will help turn Oslo into one of Europe's most modern capitals.

Partner and architect at C.F. Mĝller, Mads Mandrup Hansen states: "Crystal Clear is a unique proposal for a modern, Nordic cluster of towers - a
Norwegian urban rock, that in an exciting way adds to the city's strategic endeavour to interlace town and port into a contemporary and lively
waterfront, and at the same time fulfils the client KLP Eiendom's vision to build the most groundbreaking high-rise offices in Scandinavia.

"We are proud that Crystal Clear once again gives us the chance to contribute a significant new project to the city of Oslo, strengthening our
position in Norway, and demonstrating the broad spectre of skills our office possesses."

ATKINS and Norwegian Erichsen og Horgen AS are appointed as engineers on Crystal Clear, which is expected to be completed within 3-5 years.

Inspiration, a crystal.


Sketch of their proposal.


Final renderings.

its a nice project, will be really interesting to see the final renderings when they get done!

This is the vision by the same architect done a few years ago, the plot is right by. The project was to get anyone interested in developing a taller highrise there which finally became the 127m proposal this thread is about.

Simply amazing, much much much better than the MAD tower.. Love the cold blackness of the building with glass lighting - one of the best projects in Scandinavia, and without a doubt the best location (downtown and a great company with the two other scrapers)

This project is still active, but has been given a redesign as well as being reduced in height to 100 m. They already have a tenant for the complex that wants to move in come 2015-2016, but there is still some obstacles in the approval process. Renders of the new design;
