Gjøvik courthouse was completed in 2010, the construction is developed by Stein Halvorsen Arkitekter.
Gjøvik is a city located next to the biggest lake in Norway – Mjøsa. When developing the courthouse, the surroundings were taken in great consideration. All the public and common rooms, including the room for marriages, are overlooking the waters. This way the nature is brought inside the construction and creates a calm and friendly atmosphere. The offices and other facilities are located on the 3rd floor, facing the street and backyard.
