The project enhances the experience of the Trollstigen plateau’s location and nature. Thoughtfulness regarding elements and materials underscore the site’s nature and character, and well-adapted, functional facilities augment the visitor experience. The architecture is characterized by clear and precise transitions between planned zones and the natural landscape. Through the notion of water as a dynamic element—from snow to running and then falling water—and rock as a static element, the project creates a series of prepositional relations that describe and magnify the unique spatiality of the site. The project is a collaboration with Multiconsult 13.3 landscaping. Illustrations by, Jiri Havran/Statens vegvesen and RRA.
