My FinAL ProJeCt

The building I have chosen for my BA Honors Degree project is The Workshop Halls (Verkstedhallene, Standen 3), on Aker Brygge, Oslo, Norway. This is one off two buildings that belongs to Aker Brygge Shopping.

With the combination of the city and the water Aker Brygge got that magic atmosphere that attract people and many many tourists. It says that 13 million people visit Aker Brygge every year!!

So with its perfect location, am I redesigning The Workshop Halls into The Ultimate Travel Center. This center is going to work as a gathering place for people with a passion for traveling! Facilities within the center are going to be, travel- information, agencies, shops, library, gallery and language learning classes. The centre will also have a restaurant, café, bar/nightclub and a hostel for the travelers that are passing through Oslo on their journey.

So as of now…

- In Studio I am working on a project report, including research on the existing building, the site, and the client brief. This report is due on November 2nd.

- In cad, I am drawing up all the existing plans, sections and elevations in AutoCad from the pdf`s drawing I got off the building. By November 5th I have to have a 3D model done of the exterior.
