The entrance in the “ravine” between the two building bulks leads right toward the reception area close to the building’s centre of gravity, with visual contact to all the main target points. The two curved wings create a compact and expressive court interior facing the park and the fjord to the east.
The new building has been formed along a simple, clear-cut, flexible and functional concept. In the large building emphasis has been given to clarity, simplicity and lucidity. The façade materials define the external encompassing cloak as it contrasts with the facing of the inner courtyard, black anodized aluminium sheets against white marble. The interplay is distinctly expressed at the entrance and where the building opens to the fjord landscape.
