This proposal for student housing at the university campus at Blindern in Oslo would contain up to 598 housing units as well as a kindergarten at the ground floor.

Inner spaces and voids will serve as common roof top terraces and social meeting areas.


The project aim to express community and transparency, but yet solidness.

The shape wants to represent the fearless student and to be an inspiring and prominent buildning.

It is large enough to create an inner space and small enough to be proportionate to the surrounding buildings.

Repetition and size are the basis for the aestethics and the rational is a part of the building's expression and force.
