The sustainable office building has been designed based on a holistic idea, containing everything from daylight ratio spatiality and sustainable materials to the positioning in the vicinity of public transport. And even though the construction is foremost an inspiring open-plan office the building has been designed with enough flexibility to turn it into housing facilities.
Østensjøveien 27 has been chosen as ideal project in the initiative FutureBuilt, a corporation between The National League of Norwegian Architects, a number of municipalities, and governmental institutions. All FutureBuilt projects fulfil a number of criteria of sustainable solutions and a minimal emission of CO2. Østensjøveien 27 is the eighth realised FutureBuilt project.
In addition Østensjøveien 27 has been nominated for this year’s MIPIM Awards. MIPIM is a prestigious People’s Choice Award, which is given out annually in Cannes. The passive office building is a finalist in the category ’Best Innovative Green Building.’
