The site is localized in a transition zone between the block structure of Grünerløkka and the green landscape of the Aker River. The shape of the building is motivated by a desire to create a closure of the block towards the Aker River. The building embraces the nearby building lines and continues these. Some of the corners of the building and transitions are faceted to mute the volume effect and to give the building an independent expression. The largest of the facettes in the south direction, gives space for the canopy of an old beech.
The flats opens toward the river and the city. The trees reflects the changing seasons into the interior
