Oslo Stock Exchange

Oslo, Norway



Oslo Børs was built in 1826-28. The building was originally constructed in an austere, Doric, Empire style. In 1910, the building was extended in two parts to the south from the original building. Oslo Børs has experienced enormous growth, and the number of employees has increased from approximately 40 to approximately 100 people. The stock exchange building needed to increase in size in order to accommodate the increased number of employees.

Oslo Børs asked architect Niels Torp to come up with ideas for how this unique property could house the entire organization and at the same time retain its existing character, while at the same time creating a modern, beautiful and efficient interior.

The number of workplaces has increased enormously, the internal communication environment in the offices has become more satisfactory. The intention to connect the interior spaces has been achieved by establishing voids and balconies in the corners of the open work areas over two floors.
