picture from architects
Narud Stokke Wiig / AVIAPLAN of Norway, in collaboration with this London-based architects practice have revealed plans for a new regional airport in the municipality of Rana in Norway, just south of the Arctic Circle.
The terminal building and distinctive roof form is inspired by a local landmark; the mountain of Træna with its dramatic sculpted peaks and the local vernacular of steep pitched roof forms. The folded metal roof touches minimally with the ground to define passenger entrances and connections to planes on the airside, culminating in a tall peak, to integrate the airport control tower. The roof form is designed for substantial snow loads and minimizes solar gain through its overhangs and vertical planes.

HAPTIC Architects Practice Information
Architects studios in London, UK + Oslo, Norway
This firm is a London and Oslo-based architecture practice established in 2009 by Nikki Butenschøn, Scott Grady, Timo Haedrich and Tomas Stokke
Haptic’s ethos is to design buildings and spaces that are rigorous in their pragmatism, elegantly composed and above all, have a focus on quality and craftsmanship. Haptic, referring to the sense of touch, is a guiding force for our design work; we strive to determine the haptical qualities for each project and how they benefit the users of our buildings. This translates in materiality, spatial relationships, light and the building’s relationship with the site. Much of our work is located in stunning locations and thus we are acutely aware of our responsibilities to design outstanding pieces of architecture that sit precisely within – and are complementary to – the context within which they sit.
