‘Leüthens Kulturhave’ will be a new gathering point in the city, providing the setting for community and informal meetings. The design of the new office facilities for Trondheim City in Leüthenhaven beautifully connects the building to the new cinema, front square and existing theatre as well as the many other educational and cultural institutions in the area.

With its open design, the new municipal building invites people inside, and the building thus gives something back to the city. Clad in natural materials, the facade stands out in a welcoming and embracing expression. The design is inspired by Johan Caspar De Cicignon’s masterplan for Trondheim. The concept of the masterplan is reflected in the design of the new municipal building and cinema to provide the buildings with a historical reference.

The down-sized scale of the office building – as regards height, materials and geometry – relates to the surrounding city. With its human scale, the building meets the city at eye level, and the displaced floors and projections contribute to opening up the building to its context.

Daylight

Daylight

Daylight is one of the most important parameters of the design, both as regards sustainability and work environment. The heart of the building is the vibrant atrium space situated in the centre of the volume. The atrium features a number of displaced floors, which create terraces and balconies and thus encourage informal meetings between the employees. The atrium increases the sense of community across the organisation -whether an employee or visitor, you contribute to the atmosphere in the building.
