One Works has been shortlisted for one of the six Fornebubanen stations in a team working alongside Collective Works and Planke, as well as subcontractors Pir 2.
The Fornebubanen is the largest subway development in recent time in Oslo and will be about 8.2 km long, extending from Fornebu Centre to Majorstuen. Six new stations will be built along the new line with two stations in Oslo at Vækerø and Skøyen, and four stations in Bærum including Fornebu Centre, Flytårnet, (Telenor) Arena and a station at Lysaker.
The City of Oslo/Fornebubanen received a total of 85 applications from various Norwegian and international offices wishing to participate in the competition for the architectural design of the stations, of which 14 teams were shortlisted.
Senior Associate, Lucas London “This is an extremely exciting opportunity for us. Not only is it our first entry into the Norwegian infrastructure market, it is also an opportunity to work collaboratively with some emerging UK and Norwegian practices. We are huge fans of Norway’s approach and philosophy when it comes to design and sustainability and look forward to proposing a station that reflects this.”
