Statsbygg, Oslo, Norway



Nationaltheatret opened in 1899. It is one of Norway’s largest theatres and is well renowned in Scandinavia.

Certain design features of the existing building are limiting its use as modern performance space. Furthermore the management requires additional performance spaces.

Nationaltheatret and Statsbygg are investigating the possibilities to modify the existing building and to build a new venue next to the existing building.


BlueNode was assigned to evaluate the current stage of the theatre and to develop a concept for the renovation as well as for two new venues to provide modern performing spaces with more flexibility as the existing venue.
