The building is divided into a series of zones formed by the circles and the negative spaces inbetween them; the circles themselves are cropped by the sites boundaries and span several stories (from basement to 1st floor). Different areas may have different qualities and can be programmed individually as a group. The structure may contain several bars & restaurants, with a single (or several) owner(s).
In addition the excellent solar conditions of the site, the Tingvalla dock is surrounded by spectacular vistas & important public spaces (Akershus fortress, the City Hall, the Oslo Fiord, etc.). In response to this we have designed a building without a front or rear façade with the various interior spaces each having their own, important, view.
