      International Recognition for Norwegian Spearhead Project

      Henning Larsen's project for NCC's new headquarters in Oslo, Norway, featured on the list of 103 green solutions presented by the Sustainia 100 initiative on the climate summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

    • The selected solutions come from 56 countries on six continents and have been consolidated in the publication "Sustainia 100", which is distributed to the decision-makers at the summit. Sustainia was initiated by the Danish journal Mandag Morgen and aims at supporting a green reorganization of the world economy and letting the green revolution grow from the bottom.

      The 12,000 m2 headquarters in Oslo is designed in collaboration with NCC Property Development as a modern passive house. The Integrated Energy Design of the building meets the FutureBuilt criteria for climate-neutral building, and the building will thus become one of Norway’s first spearhead projects in green building.

      FutureBuilt is a ten-year programme initiated by the National Association of Norwegian Architects with the vision of developing climate-neutral urban spaces and architecture of high quality.

      Henning Larsen takes a holistic approach to sustainable building. Buildings should have the lowest possible environmental impact during their entire lifespan. As a genuine low-energy house, the new NCC headquarters in Oslo offers a minimized energy consumption obtained solely by means of the design and optimized building geometry.
