ØKERN PORTAL, Oslo
It is horseshoe-shaped, with a park in the middle. The building’s roof terraces are covered with grass, while the top of the building offers a wonderful panorama of the city and a view of the nearby fjord.
At the same time, it is the first building in the country, the entire façade of which will be made from the Hydro CIRCAL system, 75% of which consists of recycled aluminium. Production of
this metal leaves a 77% lower CO2 footprint and requires just 5% of the energy compared to conventional aluminium production. It is no coincidence that ØKERN PORTAL is recognised as being the greenest development in Norway.
Designing ØKERN PORTAL has also been a unique experience for the Staticus team, as it is the first project we have implemented fully according to agile principles.
