SLA to transform the cultural 'Heart of Norway'

Together with Kvorning Design and Substrata we have won the assignment to develop a feasibility study and concept plan for one of Norway’s most important cultural and historical sites: The Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim – the home to the Norwegian Royal Regalia.

Together with our team, we will design a feasibility study for the 14,000 m2 site (including courtyards, workshops, and Archbishop’s Palace), which will update the heritage-protected landscape by combining natural amenities, public life, and flexible activities with the site’s strong cultural heritage and historical monuments.

Nidaros Cathedral is almost 1,000 years old and is Norway’s most important church. In the Middle Ages, the Nidaros Cathedral was called Cor Norvegiae – the Heart of Norway.

We look forward to developing our ideas and visions for Nidaros Cathedral in the coming months together with our team and our client, Nidaros Domkirkes Restaureringsarbeider.
