The Strømsveien 106 project seeks to complete existing housing structure at Helsfyr, as a semi-urban infill along the E6.
Helsfyr is today just outside the city area, defined as "Oslo inner city", and with the planned development at Helsfyr and Valle Hovin, the area will in the near future naturally belong to the outer part of the dense city.
As a volume, the project will have a simple expression, consisting of two angled main forms. Southwest wing is a 9-storey volume and engages in the north-west wing of 14 floors. The two volumes are gently angled towards each other, with the southern corner as a turning point. This grip helps to read the building as two extensive volumes, which continue the direction from the Norwegian Tax Agency's building in the south, while also indicating the longitudinal direction that Helsfyr Panorama and the settlement in the north are organized.
The building provides a sober, but also clear and distinct urban expression towards Strømsveien, while it has a clear inquiry and opening to the park in the northwest. Through its orientation and location, the building will form a natural back and backdrop for the park as a city room, along with Helsfyr Hotel and the neighboring building surrounding the park.
