For Stor-Oslo Eiendom, we have created a vision proposal for the development of NRK's future headquarters in Linderud, north of Oslo, which will take shape as a diverse and sustainable media city with a unique view of the Norwegian capital.

Several property developers have shown an interest in the development of NRK's future headquarters. This includes Stor-Oslo Eiendom, for whom we have created a vision proposal for the development of the new headquarters for Norway's largest media company. With our proposal, we show the possibilities of establishing the headquarters in Linderud, north of Oslo, where the former and, today, conservation-worthy headquarters of Siemens can be transformed into the media city of the future – a media city that will offer a unique view of the Norwegian capital, while doing for the area at Groruddalen what the Opera has done for Bjørvika.

“We believe that we can develop something spectacular with this project – just take the TV studios on the upper floors, which will offer a fantastic view. At the same time, we offer a large building plot. We are therefore not depending on NRK to enter the entire building. We are very flexible when it comes to NRK's needs,” says Mathis Grimstad, CEO of Stor-Oslo Eiendom.

With our vision proposal, we show how the building plot in Linderud can meet NRK's wishes and requirements by embracing a wide range of functions, including other commercial players. In addition, we show how NRK will be able to build the media city of the future on a sustainable foundation. Because, by preserving Siemens’ former headquarters and transforming it for new purposes, the carbon emissions from production, processing and transport of materials, and thus also the climate footprint, are significantly reduced.
