Viken Skog is the first multi-story office building made entirely of timber, based on a traditional Norwegian construction technique. The outer walls have been preserved with jernvitrol – like the Norwegian Stave churches. The center on all floors is split by a big cone. The cone is constructed with laminated wood pillars covered with wood chips. This is thought to be a symbol of the Norwegian forest and company Skog.
