The new culture house in Fyllingsdalen will be a new, central and inclusive meeting place for the entire area. A prominent signature building that gives the area a new identity where culture meets nature. The design is inspired by Fyllingsdalen's geology, history, its surrounding nature and urban space, and sets the tone for a new sustainable development.
Thousands of years ago, large glaciers slid across the interior of Norway and out to sea. The glacier expanded and contracted between the ice ages, forming valleys where a thick layer of nutrient-rich soil settled. This accumulation of rock and soil is what geologists call a moraine. The moraine has given Fyllingsdalen the nutrient-rich soil that the farmers cultivated hundreds of years ago. Fyllingsdalen’s streams, mountains, lakes and fields occupy the landscape formed by ice, rocks and water. The landscape and architecture in our proposal use the glacier’s enormous forces and the beautiful pattern of the moraine as a starting point for design, because it is they who have given Fyllingsdalen its unique identity.
Interior, surfaces and colours
The colour palette is translated for use in materials and plants in our area, and gives the various micro, medium and macro zones stable warm hues that improve the rainy weather throughout all seasons, both indoors and outdoors.
