CASE / Øvre Vollgate 13

Øvre Vollgate 13 has undergone a comprehensive transformation from a functionalist building dating back to 1938, into a modern office building! The project focuses on preserving the historical and architectural values of the building, simultaneously incorporating modern qualities.

"The project is an important contribution to increasing knowledge about methods for preserving various building elements and materials," says IARK.

Since 1938, Øvre Vollgate 13 has stood as a functionalist building in Kvadraturen in Oslo. In 2023, the building has undergone extensive rehabilitation under the management and collaboration of PUSHAK and IARK. Now, the building stands as a forward-looking and modern office building with well-preserved architectural values and history.

For the client, it has been crucial to emphasize quality. The goal is to achieve the longest possible durability for the added elements," says IARK.
"Fora Form was chosen due to its local production and the need for enduring quality."

Based on this, Fora Form has been commissioned to deliver a range of furniture for various types of meeting rooms and social zones. This includes smaller meeting room solutions, featuring Kvart tables and Fjell chairs, designed by Lars Tornøe.

All the executions in the building are clearly connected to the concept, and quality is at the core of all the choices in the project:
"The color palette is warm and timeless, designed to endure over an extended period."

In larger conference rooms, IARK has utilized Dwell chairs, designed by Matias Stenberg. Being a spacious conference chair, Dwell is an excellent alternative for zones that emphasize longer meetings where comfort is crucial. It allows users to have a clear and defined space in larger meeting contexts.
