DEG42, Norway

Behold Queen Eufemias Gate 42 (DEG42). An office building at Oslo’s waterfront that stands out with the very strong suspended meeting rooms in tile, which is overhang on the east façade with unique view through floor-to-ceiling windows. Along with New York-inspired fire escape that winds outside on the east, meeting rooms along the façade creates the unconventional a unique sculptural and dramatic look.

The tile façade is done in full height, ie. all weight is brought down to the foundation. The displaced window positions result in increased loads on the brick beams as the load is brought down to the foundation, and thus up to 17 shift high prefabricated tile beams are made to support the construction. The meeting boxes are suspended in a bearing steel structure with suspended bricklifts along the underside of the boxes. The thickness of the tile ceilings is just 35 mm. to achieve a minimalist expression.
