Brunstranda Service Building by Jørgen Tandberg Architecture and Vatn Architecture

"Simple and clear" service centre draws on roadside buildings in Norway

Local studios Jørgen Tandberg Architecture and Vatn Architecture looked towards the simplicity of utilitarian roadside buildings when designing Brunstranda Service Building in Norway .

Located in Lofoten, an archipelago in the north of Norway, the concrete service centre provides rest spaces and bathroom facilities for cyclists and surfers visiting the area.

It replaces old and dilapidated facilities on the site, which is positioned beside a white sandy beach and bordered by the large mountain ranges of Flakstadøy.

Exterior view of Brunstranda Service Building on Norwegian coast

Jørgen Tandberg Architecture and Vatn Architecture took visual cues from the straightforward forms of utilitarian buildings found along roads nearby in Norway for their design.

This led to a pared-back, cuboidal volume for the centre, built with prefabricated concrete elements, including fourteen-metre-long beams, and a gridded facade.

It is topped by a roof structure that extends beyond the walls, providing covered outdoor areas where tourists can shelter from the rain.

Exterior view of public centre by Jørgen Tandberg Architecture and Vatn Architecture

"The form of the building is simple and clear, with strong horizontal lines contrasting the wild landscape around it," architect Espen Vatn told Dezeen.

"We like the ordinary utilitarian and unassuming buildings one finds along the roads in Norway," added architect Jørgen Tandberg. "Our project aims to refine and elevate aspects of these buildings into a contemporary structure."

Concrete public shelter exterior by Jørgen Tandberg Architecture and Vatn Architecture

Panels of glazing and stainless steel feature across the gridded facades, while a bench spans the entire sea-facing elevation to offer spaces for rest.

Where the exterior walls are not glazed, panels of white bush-hammered concrete with marble aggregate are used to echo the colours of the surrounding landscape.

"The white, bush-hammered concrete used in the construction refers back to the colour and texture of the sand at the nearby beaches," said Tandberg.

"Emphasis has been placed on robustness and durability in the choice of materials," Vatn expanded. "All surfaces not part of the concrete structure were made from stainless steel of the best quality, to withstand the harsh weather conditions in Lofoten for many years to come."

Brunstranda Service Building by Jørgen Tandberg Architecture and Vatn Architecture

Inside, Brunstranda Service Building features a deliberately simple arrangement of spaces accessed by a bright yellow door on the mountain-facing side.

This entrance leads into an enclosed relaxation space that features a series of circular elements including a round bench and small circular windows.

Interior view of Norwegian public shelter by Jørgen Tandberg Architecture and Vatn Architecture

Clerestory glazing around its edges matches the one-metre depth of the exposed beams.

The room is punctuated by a stainless steel divider, which separates the relaxation space from the rest of the building where there are four toilet cubicles.

Relaxation space within the Brunstranda Service Building in Norway

Alongside creating Brunstranda Service Building, the studios also updated the surrounding area with paths and parking spaces, as well as circular benches that offer views of the nearby sea.

Other public buildings recently completed in Norway include a brightly coloured floating sauna and an art gallery that has been created within a 1930s grain silo .

PhD Position in Architecture

Ntnu norwegian university of science and technology , norway.

In 2015, the 2030 agenda with the 17 sustainability goals was adopted by all UN member states. The sustainability goals see the environment, economy, and social development in context. The time horizon for necessary changes is short, and it is challenging to combine different considerations without conflicts of objectives and unintended consequences of measures.

NTNU is now announcing 44 individual PhD positions that will contribute to a greater understanding of system effects, societal changes and conflicts of interest related to the sustainability challenges. These positions are divided into 9 interdisciplinary projects with mainly 4-7 PhD positions in each project.

In this position, the candidate is expected to cooperate with the other PhD students in the project Circular City, an interdisciplinary collaboration to better understand the role of existing buildings as a resource base for a future circular economy. Specifically, the project aims to develop the necessary quantified models, qualitative approaches, domain knowledge and methods to develop a Circular City Information Infrastructure (CCII) that details the quantities, qualities and potential of materials and building elements at a large scale. Through a cooperation of research teams from architecture, planning, structural engineering, geography, geology, manufacturing, and industrial ecology, Circular City will provide plausible pathways towards a circular low-carbon building stock. Circular City is at this stage announcing the call for 4 PhD positions.

At the Department of Architecture and Planning, Circular City is seeking a PhD candidate to complete a doctoral education and obtain a doctoral degree in the PhD Programme in Architecture. The goal of this PhD is to participate in a trans- and interdisciplinary group that will inform circular economy strategies for the built environment. The PhD student will, in cooperation with other project partners, develop novel approaches to circular resource management of the building stock with a higher granularity, including bottom-up data gathering, remote sensing, building information modelling (BIM), structural engineering modelling, and systematic knowledge about architecture and construction technology. The project will be developed using Trondheim and Trøndelag county as case studies, while the approach developed will be generic.

Additionally, the PhD candidate will explore the preconditions for comprehensive circular building stock analysis, metabolisms and urban mining through studies of historical and contemporary urban patterns, morphologies, typologies, building technology, transformation and social structures. The candidate will contribute to a common dynamic material flow analysis (MFA) model which will be used for scenario development, making it possible to explore and test potential applications and implications for reuse of materials, typologies, urban patterns, social implications and aesthetics, among other aspects. This will require a sound understanding of architecture, building technology, Building Information Modelling (BIM) as well as other qualitative and quantitative approaches to examining the built environment.

Master’s students in the finale phase of the program are encouraged to apply.

The position will report to the head of department.

  • Provide valid scientific contributions from the Candidates field of research to the common Circular City framework.
  • Develop the necessary methodical, ethical and scientific approaches to ensure a high level of research integrity.
