The project Østerås park has an exciting location surrounded by Nordveien, Granåsen and Eiksveien. The main idea is founded on the principle of turning away from the traffic and turn all common areas towards the light and the sun. The idea has been to create a box in the landscape, where three of the sides have a dense simple character, while the west façade, facing towards the light, is given a completely different character which has provided the building its distinctive architectural concept. The entire west facade breaks up in different angles with pointed balconies stretching towards the sun. Composition with angles gives more facade facing west where common areas are located. In addition, it creates variety and with the pointy characteristic cantilevered balconies give the building its own unique identity. To further emphasize the building’s location with the surrounding roads, the outdoor areas adjacent to the apartments are leveled up. This gives a distance to the surrounding environment – and create a more private oasis for the residents. We are convinced that we have created a unique and qualitatively residential building that will give the residents many good experiences in the future.
