The scale and materials of Trylleesken relate to this very unique location in Oslo. The building will be an architectural landmark in the city and rooted in the local context. It interacts with its surroundings by means of for instance its brick facade, which matches the monk bricks of Akershus as well as the sophisticated brickwork of the City Hall.
The artistic boxes of the floors create a dramatic foyer, which rises as a canyon through the Museum and becomes the grandiose circulation space of the building. The interior of the Museum is an open, bright and floating space, which appears as an integrated part of the facade from the outside.
The foyer takes visitors from the pulsating life of the city to a peaceful and breathtaking view of the city and fjord. Besides enjoying the view from the various plateaus, visitors can take a look into the exhibitions. The artistic boxes are connected by means of interior stairs, which create alternative, inner flows between the floors.
