Project Description

Sparebanken Vest’s new building in the Jonsvoll quarter gathers 850 competence workplaces under one roof. Employees are from both Sparebanken and other financial and insurance institutions in Bergen. The ten-floor building has a total area of approximately 20 000 m2. Arkitekgruppen CUBUS in cooporation with  Brandsberg-Dahls Arkitekter have designed the building, and IARK has designed the interiors. Cooperation and information were key words for the process. Close working contact between all professions, and clear information channels, ensured a final product with both high quality and satisfied clients. Materials used are timeless, natural and inspired by West Norwegian nature. The architecture, interior design and company profile combine to make a clear and well composed building for the city and its users.
