Earlier this summer we had the chance to go on a little adventure to Norway. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to the quite spectacular observation platform on the Trollstigen National Tourist Route designed by Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter. A lot of architects would give up a limb to do a project like this and fortunately the Norwegian government not only have a lot of money, they also have taste and the good sense to appoint such a talented team. Needless to say the area is breathtaking in itself and the architects responsible have created a beautiful man-made addition to help the visitor to enjoy it in comfort and in this case, style.
What immediately draws our attention is of course the beautiful steel and concrete observation platform hanging off a cliff, but what’s impressive is the attention to detail that has gone into the whole site. From its well constructed wood and steel pathways to the great fireplace in the canteen.
This is how the architects themselves explain the project:
“The project enhances the experience of the Trollstigen plateau’s location and nature. Thoughtfulness regarding elements and materials underscore the site’s nature and character, and well-adapted, functional facilities augment the visitor’s experience. The architecture is characterised by clear and precise transitions between planned zones and the natural landscape. Through the notion of water as a dynamic element - from snow, to running and then falling water - and rock as a static element, the project creates a series of prepositional relations that describe and magnify the unique spatiality of the site.”
Trollstigen National Tourist Route is a true treasure.
