Holmen Aquatics Centre is a continuation of Holmen beach, protecting and reinforcing the site’s natural qualities. The building’s footprint is overlaid with a roof garden that further enhances the experience of the beach with spectacular views. The focal point of the concept of the project by Arkís arkitektar is the activation of the building’s roof as an integral part of Holmen beach recreation area. The grassed roof slopes towards the south and provides an uninterrupted view of Oslo fjord’s islands and reefs.
