New office space for our Oslo branch

Thibaut Devulder

Our Norwegian office is now sharing an office space in Oslo with Various Architects.

I originally got in touch with Various Architects via Snøhetta, who we met at the World Architecture Festival Awards 2011 — they were shortlisted in the same category as our LaM pavilion and they won!

Ibrahim Elhayawan, partner at Various Architects, worked with Snøhetta for 13 years before creating his own practice in 2008. He kindly offered me to join the new office space they were moving in to, on the top floor of Sommerrogata 17, right in front of Oslo's National Library.
