The old machine room

Hallen forms the heart of an old transformer station that supplied power for Oslo’s trams and outdoor lighting. This part of the building was built from 1898–1900 and updated in  1912–1913 and boasts a classic style with large steel industrial windows and patterned masonry work designed to harmonise with the nearest neighbour, Jakob Church.  

The architect behind the renovation in 2003-2005, Jan Olav Jensen from Jensen & Skodvin, says it was important to preserve the building’s history:

We wanted to reveal the early history of the building. The building site had undergone several renovations over the years, but all traces of past walls and flooring have been preserved and we have remedied any hazardous structural features.
