Noble, durable, beautiful, and friendly

The New Government Quarter will contribute to a better urban environment—it will be efficient, flexible and secure for the collection of ministries it will house in the years to come. It will be an area of representation for the government, yet open and available to all. Four words guide its development: noble, durable, beautiful, and friendly.

Adapt

The concept was named Adapt, because it does exactly that; it adapts to the city it is a part of. When finished, the New Government Quarter will convey Norwegian values: transparency, accessibility and a close affinity to nature. It will be a highly functional and attractive place of work, and it will feel like a natural extension of the city — a place where the residents of the city will feel at home.
