AtelierOslo is a young norwegian architecture practice, established in 2006. They have already had success in several architectural competitions, including the recent 1st prize in the international competition for the new central library of Oslo, in collaboration with Lund Hagem and Agence Ter.
Lantern, the winning project of the competition ‘Norwegian Wood Sandnes amfiscene’ together with AWP Paris in 2006, was the founding basis of the studio. The Lantern was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award in 2009.
AtelierOslo aim at identifying the specific key challenges in each task, creating a common ground for the later evaluation of a spectrum of ideas and solutions. Their portfolio includes projects ranging from large housing projects to single family houses.
AtelierOslo was awarded one of the Young Designers Prizes by the Foundation for Design and Architecture in Norway in 2008.
The partners of AtelierOslo are Jonas Norsted (b.1973), Marius Mowe (b.1973), Nils Ole Bae Brandtzaeg (b.1975) and Thomas Liu (b.1978) all graduated from the Oslo School of Architecture.
