The Arctic Circle Airport, Norway
This new airport terminal building is located in the municipality of Rana in Nordland, Norway, just south of the Arctic Circle. The mountain site is well forested, with views to the Fiords to the west and a prime location to see the midnight sun and famous northern lights.
The terminal building and distinctive roof form is inspired by a local landmark; the mountains of Træna, with its dramatic peaks as well as the local vernacular. The zig-zagged roof culminates in a tall peak, which houses the airport control tower.
Feasibility study for new regional international airport. In collaboration with Narud Stokke Wiig Architects & Planners (CGI's by Imaging Atelier).
