Oslo’s Sustainable Waterside Restaurant


Designed by Danish practice MAPT architecture, Bølgen restaurant in Oslo fuses traditional elements with its location on the Norwegian city’s modern urban waterfront, resulting in an eye-catching façade and in-built flexibility.

Bølgen’s roof is constructed from traditional Norwegian Wood, and is supported by seven wooden trunks. It hangs like a canopy over the glass windows that line the restaurant’s façade. These can be folded back to extend the restaurant’s outdoor area onto the pier. The space has been built to allow flexibility, easily transforming from dining room to conference room or performance space. Sustainable as well as attractive, the restaurant is insulated with recycled newspapers.

Design studio MAPT has since split into two separate practices: Lendager Arkitekter and Arc Agency.
