Trollveggen is the highest sheer cliff face in Europe. The existing roadside facilities for travellers along the narrow valley at the bottom of Trollveggen needed upgrading, and the new facility comprises parking and outdoor elements like bridges and seating in addition to the visitors’ centre.
The simple plan includes a café, restroom, commercial areas and an auditorium. The vertical articulation, however, with its series of triangulated prisms constructed with slender steel columns and branch structures, shows off the full height of the cliff face.
The exterior cladding is glazing and spruce panelling, stained black. Interior walls and ceilings are finished in pine plywood. The floor is polished concrete. The building is only designed for summer occupation, which allows for slender detailing.
