Status: Completed 2010

Reconstruction of the old Christiania Seilduksfabrikk located by Akerselva river to accommodate the faculty for visual arts and the faculty for design.

Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo (KHiO) has come together at Seilduksfabrikken by Akerselva river at Grünerløkka, within an area of gross 24,000 m².
 
Seilduksfabrikken is among the biggest and best kept industrial facilities from the end of the 1800s. The main effort of construction stage 2 for KHiO is within a special area of preservation. Hence, the City Inspector of the Inspectorate of Ancient Monuments and Historic Buildings in Oslo has been the most important public person to set the terms for the external frames of the project and the principal attitude is that existing buildings should be renovated and that the physical measures taken should be few and obvious, rather than numerous and small.
