Mercedes Benz Showroom in Oslo, Norway by Kristin Jarmund Architects

The building contains an exclusive showroom for Mercedes Benz Norway – which further legitimizes the dynamic architecture.

The building is the first building in Norway of it's size to be built with Bubble-Deck, a deck system in which each concrete deck is filled with plastic balls. This makes the decks lighter and gave us great freedom with regards to cantilevering and a allowed for a greater distance between each column – 12,5 m.

The projects sun protection strategy is based upon using sun reducing glass and black glass insulated from the inside. The pattern of glass closes towards south and opens towards east and west, emphasizing the curvature at the same time.
