Akerselva Atrium is architecture of atrium building for commercial was designed by Peter Pran of NBBJ, located in Grünerløkka, Oslo, Norway. This is building with 36.80 m of height and facade materials from glass and aluminum with high-rise building of construction type. The project composed of two distinct architectural forms split by the lift core with a dramatic striking color glass atrium, where the entrance of the project is defined. Surrounded by historical industrial, office and buildings, it is among the first contemporary and innovative designs introduced to the area in recent years.
As a site-specific project, the design to the area’s existing architectural aesthetic, while the use of juxtaposed facades, materials and colors, enlivens the neighborhood with a new modern identity. The design also ties to the riverfront whenever possible:
* The all-metal curtain wall melds with the area’s predominantly metal and masonry buildings; its white-and-blue punched bring a modern interplay of color and shape.
* The west-facing all high-performance glass facade tilts 90 degrees to seemingly float above the river, providing staff with not only a panoramic views but a unique sensation of above water.
* The inward-leaning atrium serves as the project’s primary entrance and is clearly marked by a dramatic 10-story leaning atrium comprised entirely of orange glass.
* The atrium defines a diagonal circulation path through the project, splitting it in two.
* At street level, a wide staircase offers the area’s only public access point to the riverside.
