Christian Kroghs Gate 2 is a 26,000 m² office building and retail space in Central Oslo that will create a vital urban environment with active street life. The project will provide this part of the city a distinctive architecture and clear identity, contributing to the upgrade of downtown Oslo. 

The building adapts to its surroundings. The facade has been given a triple expression by the cantilevered middle element towards the street and the river, where the impression is recognized from the classic town-houses.

The river's value as a recreation area will be enhanced by a new walkway along the western river bank. It will also provide access to commercial and other public-oriented activities in Christian Krohgs Gate 2.
My own thoughts on the process:
The competition proposal was made during my internship at SHL in Aarhus, where the work process is very collaborative. Each of the team members would work on solving a problem in different ways, then we would meet again to discuss the different options with each other and the responsible partner, to decide which way to go. That being said, I was responsible for most of the 3D work on the project, based on plans from the project architect. This meant I had a great deal of say on the conceptual volume studies, facade design, interior design studies, etc.
