Office with a view

Asker Genera is situated on the main road into Oslo from Drammen, and will offer office space for 800 - 1 000 people over seven floors, complete with cafeteria, coffee shop, fitness centre and a roof terrace with stunning views over the Oslo fjord and the surrounding landscape.

Intelligent design

The solution was to organise the building around a central atrium and hub, in which all shared functions such as the main entrance, cafeteria and coffee shop are located. Parking facilites are provided underground, allowing the outdoor spaces to be turned into informal meeting places with greenery and bespoke furniture.

Challenging constraints

The existing buildings adjacent to the site presented a challenge in designing a building that offers light and air to its tenants, at the same time as being functional and logistically efficient.
