OSLO | Tjuvholmen Development

- Island of Thieves
Click logo for Official website

Presenting Tjuvholmen. A project masterminded by one of Norway's most respected architects, Niels Torp.

In 2002 he conceived of this plan to turn an old industrial pier, adjacent to Aker Brygge, into a landscape of islands, canals and the latest in Norwegian modern architecture, housing top-end apartments, top-end boutiques, top-end office space and also a museum and a hotel, both top-end of course. The project also piqued the interest of starchitect Renzo Piano, who leaped at the opportunity to design the museum. Selvaag Gruppen and Aspelin-Ramm gruppen are the joint construction firms behind the project, which was originally named 'Utsyn'


Tjuvholmen is only the first part in a wider vision known as 'Fjordbyen' or the Fjordcity. The plan is to turn all the old industrial harbour areas in the inner city into new centres for commerce and recreation, as well as housing in general. The image below should help you to identify the Tjuvholmen project within this wider scheme.

Akerodden


Construction Phase 1 (F2)



Construction phase one was completed in 2007, It is of mixed use, including apartments, office space and shops. The buildings were designed by Norwegian architectural firms Kristin Jarmund, Kari Nissen Brodtkorb, HRTB and MAD. Their designs were developed independently and only very loosely coordinated in the final stages, an approach that has resulted in much variety in the buildings' appearance. The city block is triangular in shape and is located on Akerodden, the part of Tjuvholmen closest to Aker Brygge. The streets surrounding the block are Lille Stranden, Bolette Brygge and Tjuvholmen Alle.


The building with the greatest impact as seen from Bryggetorget at Aker Brygge will be the cornerbuilding designed by Kristin Jarmund. The building uses so-called bubbledeck technology in its construction.

HRTB architects designed two buildings, both very similar in appearance and both 8 stories high, with 18 and 17 apartments respectively. HRTB architects have previously designed such works as Grünerløkka Studenthus and Porthuset.



Kari Nissen Brodtkorb has designed this building facing Olav Selvaags Plass, as well as the corner-building at Bolette Brygge and Lille Stranden. Brodtkorb has also designed buildings at Aker Brygge, more specifically Stranden just across the canal, or Dokken as it is known.




MAD (Moderne Arkitektur & Design) is behind this 8 story infill project which among other thing includes duplex apartments, i.e. apartments covering two floors.



Construction Phase 2 (F3, F1 North)


The buildings in this phase have been designed by Niels Torp and Finnish architectural firm Gullichsen Vormala Architects. F3 covers the southwestern part of Akerodden in a semicircular shape. F1 North completes the view of Tjuvholmen and its central allé from Bryggetorget at Aker Brygge. These phases were completed in 2008.






Construction Phase 3
(F1 South)


Construction Phase 3 includes a oval building designed by Niels Torp and an L-shaped building designed by Hammer Schmidt Lassen. Originally some of this building-mass was intended to house Tjuvholmen Hotel but these plans have since been altered. This is the last phase of construction on Akerodden and is scheduled to be completed in 2010.






Tjuvholmen Island


The "Flatiron" block


This will be the first block to be completed on the island itself. It is seperated into three different units:

Tjuvholmen allé 9 is designed by Dark architects and will be the first to be constructed on the island of Tjuvholmen. Construction is scheduled to start in 2009 and to finish in 2011. The building is intended for office space.


The next unit, Tjuvholmen allé 21, is designed by architects Hansen/Bjørndal. Its purpose is primarily residential and the facade has a distinct curve. Scheduled completion is for 2012.


The last unit facing west is designed by architect Jensen/Skodvin. It is also scheduled to be complete in 2012.



Tjuvholmen Museum


The museum complex will be designed by Renzo Piano and house, among other things, the Astrup-Fearnley collection of modern art, which is currently on exhibit at a different venue in Oslo. The collection includes works by Andy Warhol an Jeff Koons. The concept is being developed in co-operation with Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Copenhagen. The complex will also include a so-called event centre or Exploria, developed in co-operation with Event Communications Ltd., London. In addition to this, an observation tower is planned built.

The museum will span over a canal to the small island of Skjæret. The plan is to have a sculpture park on the island. The artists to be included are Anish Kapoor, Franz West, Louise Bourgeois, Peter Fishli & David Weiss, and Ellsworth Kelly, to name a few of the planned works. The island will also have a small beach for swimming.







Tjuvholmen Hotel + adjacent blocks


According to the new plans, the hotel will be on the opposite side of the canal, and will only be built in the later stages of construction. The original design by Hammer Schmidt Lassen will be used for mixed office/residential use only. The hotel will be run by the hotel chain Choice hotels, and designed by Mellbye Arkitekter.


The block will also include two additional units. These will not belong to the hotel. The architects are HRTB for the unit immediately adjacent to the hotel and Lof architects for the curved facade (Landgangen 3). The block is expected to be complete in 2013.




Remaining construction Phases

The two blocks at the furthest end of the island have been designed by Torstein Ramberg (Kavringen Brygge 2-4) and Lund Hagem (Kavringen Brygge 3). Both are scheduled to be complete in 2013. The Lund Hagem block will also include a seperate unit, designed by Jensen/Skodvin.





The last construction phase will consist of four blocks located behind the hotel block as from the perspective of Aker Brygge. The first two of them will be designed by Narud Stokke Wiig and Torstein Ramberg. The remaining two are by Hammer Schmidt Lassen.

Renzo Piano have put up some pictures showing glass plates being mounted on the museum on his site. Click on "all projects" and then just find Norway on the map.
