VIA, Oslo, Norway

Designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects
A Workplace of the Future

Located just a few meters from the fjord, VIA is a central cross-section and a symbolic focal point for the new modern Oslo. The architecture interprets the surrounding volumes’ characteristics and heights and adds a new and unique architectural expression. The complex is a combination of exclusive shops, high-end offices and parking facilities.

VIA is a mixed-use office development in Olso, Norway’s central business district

From the outside, the project appears as a tight sculpture that adapts to the different scales of the site and to the city’s street profile.

New passages and squares create shortcuts through the block. Enhanced integration between the building and the city is achieved by introducing two new areas – the entrance square and an inner courtyard.

Inside, the modern, robust office areas are designed to make maximum use of daylight conditions, as well as offering spectacular views of the Oslo skyline and fjord.

VIA received a Commendation in the Mixed Use category at the 2017 Architectural Review MIPIM Future Project Awards celebrated in Cannes, France.
