Nordahl Grieg Videregående Skole, Bergen, Norway

This is the latest college addition to Bergen community on the West coast of Norway. The college is designed by Link Arkitektur AS, they are among the leading architect offices in Scandinavia. The offices have a staff of approximately 240 professionals.

The building exhibits a range of fascinating design elements that combine to deliver a stimulating environment for the teenagers to develop in. The exterior is a combination of pre treated lead and glass facades. As you progress into the central atrium you are immediately made aware of the scale of the building. Split over three floors the clever intergration of passage ways and classroom layouts leads to a very open feel.

The classroom walls are made of clear and tinted glass, which looks fantastic, how the teachers control the visual exchange between students in different classrooms, I’m unsure. I know this would certainly be a challenge in London, but perhaps the Norwegian students are a little better behaved!
