Project description

The majority of the new development area is located on a plateau west of the main hall. The plateau is cut off from the rest of the functions of the complex and it is only from the brink of the plateau one sees the terraces south of the main hall of the main entrances to the main hall and conference centre. From there you get a glance towards the beach area, the bay, and the terraced houses on the valley floor. The establishment of a general sightline from the plateau towards the fjord binds the plateau with the valley floor. A new sight line from the access zone on the plateau of the fjord provides visual contact throughout the convention centre, the valley, the coastal zone and the fjord.

Upon arrival at Brunstad you will immediately enjoy an overview of where you are in relation to the main entrances to the convention centre. and other functions, and provide a foundation for the landscape environment, with contact to the foothills that define the landscape to the east and west and overlook the bay and the archipelago around. It is important that the Oslo fjord Convention Centre perceived as a “destination” from the moment you arrive on the accommodation and community activities in the great hall and recreation areas, to leaving the area through the same point you arrived.
