Project Description

Our goal in this project was to create a roadside restaurant that defies this ignored typology, and to create a building that would unite a sense of speed and motion with a surprising sensation of tranquillity and proximity to nature. This motorway diner is located on the E18 outside of Oslo, and the distinctive shape is designed to echo the topography of the surrounding landscape.

The design is based on the principle of a pavilion opening the dining area towards the view of the nearby trees. The shape is generated from a folded plane which forms the roof and the two side walls. The detailing and choice of materials are all focused on furthering this architectural language. The outer surface of the folded plane is patinated copper cladding.

The inner surface is formed in composite panels with a timber veneer, where the size and position of the inner cladding is perfectly aligned with the banding in the copper sheets. This distinctive building has become a landmark along this important road out of the city of Oslo.
