Tjuvholmen Spa, Oslo, Norway

Chris Hodson

This waterside development in the modern Tjuvholmen quarter is designed to maximise views over the Oslo fjord. Apartments are arranged in two blocks, one with a ground floor residents’ communal area and shops, the other with a spa and fitness centre at basement and ground levels.

A blue-grey slate plinth sits beneath pristine white rendered apartment facades, relieved by crisply detailed horizontal copings, window cills and heads in a golden copper alloy. The same copper alloy is used for perforated screen panels, aligning with the fenestration and slightly raised off the walls. The distinctive pattern of perforations is simply repeated thematically on panels throughout the project, including a continuous screen to entrance glazing of the Spa block, contrasting with the dark slate facades.
