The Norwegian Mountaineering Center is anchored in an innovative interpretation of nature’s fantastic dimensions and the dramatic experience of mountaineering.

Dette gir bygningsvolumet en særegen karakter som formidler det spesielle innholdet med et spennende og unikt uttrykk, og senteret får dermed en bygningskropp med ekspressiv geometri.

En utenpåliggende hud gjør at husets gestalt blir enhetlig med stor originalitet og står frem i situasjonen ved Raumabanen og Skysstasjonen i sentrum av Åndalsnes.
