Hoffsveien 17

AART/SJ architects have designed a new office building for Fram Eiendom located at one of the approach roads to Skøyen in Oslo. The building is located close to the city’s green spaces and traffic junctions and is based on first class materials and consistent use of wood and bricks.
 
The office building rises four storeys high and covers 5,500 square metres of office spaces and shops on the ground floor. The building is designed and organised in a way that makes it possible to extend it later on with an annexe for dwellings. In this way, it lives up to the visions of the town plan “Byplangrep Skøyen”.
 
Furthermore, the shops are open and accommodating towards the planned future shopping street Hovfaret. The office rooms are located over the shops and form a contrast to the transparent ground floor – encompassed by a brick facade, where roof-high window sections of varying width add life and and a dynamic feel to the facade.
