Iskosset
The dynamic process of ice crystals merging and colliding has shaped the form of the new Ski Museum.

Rising out of the rocky terrain of the Holmenkollen mountain, Oslo’s new Ski Museum uses steel and glass to capture the changing quality of ice crystals. Snow and ice are central elements of Norwegian culture, intrinsically related to skiing.

The building is grounded in the mountainside, with a minimal footprint that reduces interference with the existing terrain and forested vegetation. It is constructed as a part of natural landscape, with a relatively low elevation and entrance through an underground tunnel.

The structure is visually divided into two ‘ice crystals’ that dynamically capture the ski jump through a light chasm in the space between the volumes. The planning of the space focuses on effiency and flexibility, with a large exhibition space and adjoining auditorium.

Apalløkka
Sports facilities in balance with the Østmarka forest.

STAGE 2

Apalløkka Sports center, stage 2, is an extension to the existing sports venue that was also designed by Sletvold Arkitekter in 2003. The center provides flexible sports facilities to both the local school and community. This includes hall space, spectator stands, change rooms, offices and meeting rooms.

The center is located adjacent to Østmarka and the Vesletjern recreation area, in the forest north east of Oslo. This site required a building that was responsive and sensitive to the surrounding natural environment. Blackened wood siding merges into the dark greens of the forest and landscape.

Rectangular volumes protrude from the front façade, creating strong visual connections between the users of the building and the site. Windows within these elements reflect the sky, water and trees. These volumes are obliquely angled toward key elements at Vesletjern and allow for the aesthetic integration of heating systems and services within the building.

Apalløkka sports center meets strict functional requirements while achieving balance with the surrounding landscape.

Korsvoll
Combining sport facilities and a kindergarten to create a cultural meeting point in Korsvoll.

The proposed multipurpose hall is located on the north western side of the existing 7′er playing field and provides sport facilities for the Korsvoll area, including multipurpose courts, changerooms, clubhouse function space, offices and meeting rooms. Kindergarten facilities for 72 children are situated in the southwestern end of the building.

The new hall comfortably fits into the residential surroundings with sensitive design and material use. High ceilings within the sports facilities are accommodated with an internal floor height lower than the existing ground level. A continuous façade along Åmotveien and dark wooden cladding reduce the scale of the building, creating a pedestrian friendly street profile.

A more complex façade adjacent to the playing fields articulates the different zones of the building and creates a playful kindergarten entrance. The development of a high quality outdoor space adjoining the kindergarten will increase the quality of the local environment.

Korsvoll multipurpose hall is a social arena for all ages, from small children to sports enthusiasts and spectators. The building will be in constant use with various forms of activity, bringing together and engaging members of the Korsvoll community.

Multipurposehall
Creating cost effective and high quality community spaces.

Sports facilities are important community buildings. They serve as gathering places for many activities and groups of people, and have a central place in the local environment. Multipurpose halls are large buildings with very specific requirements, traditionally built with little consideration of aesthetics.

Sletvold Arkitekter meets this challenge to provide cost effective and architecturally designed sporting facilities. With consideration of practicality and sustainability, Sletvold Arkitekter shapes buildings that provide a cultural experience and improve the quality of the local landscape.

The standard multipurpose hall has a distinctive angled form that is area efficient and creates an iconic neighborhood sporting facility. The standard room program includes a 23 x 44 meter open playing surface, changing rooms, toilets, judge facilities, club rooms, a fitness center and additional services.
