C. F. Møller Architects, in collaboration with Kristin Jarmund Arkitekter, has won a major competition to design a spectacular new landmark project in the city of Oslo, for the client KLP AS, one of Norway’s largest property investors. The project, which has been dubbed Crystal Clear, consists of three towers, which grow organically from the ground to form a sculptural cluster, and are composed of stacked, prismatic volumes.

The development totals approximately 90,000 sq m of offices, commercial space and possibly housing, located at one of Oslo’s most valuable sites, the former postal sorting office adjacent to the central station. ‘Crystal Clear’ ties in with the city’s skyline, and the string of developing landmark projects that will help turn Oslo into one of Europe’s most modern capitals.

Partner and architect at C.F. Møller, Mads Mandrup Hansen states: “Crystal Clear is a unique proposal for a modern, Nordic cluster of towers – a Norwegian urban rock, that in an exciting way adds to the city’s strategic endeavour to interlace town and port into a contemporary and lively waterfront, and at the same time fulfils the client KLP Eiendom’s vision to build the most groundbreaking high-rise offices in Scandinavia.
