Building Designs in Norway

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Norwegian Building Designs. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both. We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Norway. The focus is on contemporary Norwegian buildings but information on traditional Nordic buildings is also welcome.

We have 5 pages of Norwegian Architecture selections.

All unnecessary luxury would also be eliminated: no satellite channels, minibar or brass doorknobs. The idea would simply be based on a warm shelter and a view out to the Barents Sea. A person spending the night in a room would still feel he or she was in Kirkenäs.
