Norwegian Red Cross office space

When Oslo Red Cross decided to move to new premises in the center of Oslo, Various Architects were contacted by the Project manager of Stella – Red Cross Centre for Women, Marianne Bockelie, to support in the design of the new office space. Various Architects completed the design work on voluntary basis, showing our support to the Red Cross organization which we strongly believe in.

The project is split over two floors. The lower floor houses Stella, with public areas including the reception, canteen, meeting rooms, and internet café, in addition to a few offices. The top floor is mainly office space for staff. The project was developed in close collaboration with Marianne Bockelie. The design focuses on flexibility by maximizing the open spaces. This allows natural lighting to flow through the whole floor.

The opening ceremony for Stella, attended by her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mette Marit, received considerable media attention, emphasizing the importance of woman as a valuable resource in the society, regardless of the cultural and ethnic background.
