Kanalpiren By Lund Hagem

The office building has been developed based on the following intentions:

  • The solution is functional, rational and flexible for office operations – a structure that is suitable for several and different companies/tenants, changing needs over time and frequent replacements.
  • The development creates a city wall against the central area and otherwise functions as a part of a bigger picture.
  • The development enjoys the best views possible.
  • The development contributes to creating generous and sunny outdoor areas.

Architects: Lund Hagem
Client: Hinna Park AS
Location: Jåttåvågen, Stavanger
Size: 15,200 m²
Status: Completed 2009

Emphasis has been placed on achieving a great connection between  the  central  area  and  the  green  park  in  the background. Large cuts through the building provide for visual contact and easy access.

External walls are isolated with 200 mm mineral wool and we have focused on avoiding thermal bridges. Tall and
narrow elements of glass and closed wall panels of cement fibers are mounted between horizontal bands of aluminum. All glass with exterior sun screening is without sun filters to utilise daylight and glass bays with glued corners are elements in the rhythm of the design.
