Norway’s famous for its incredible, vast landscapes that are unlike anywhere else in the world. There’s a lot to see. Reiulf Ramstad Architects make sure you catch as much as you can with the stunning Trollstigen Visitor’s Center and trail in Møre og Romsdal, a UNESCO-protected region in the northernmost part of Western Norway. Sheer mountainsides, fjords, verdant valleys and waterfalls; rather than working to create a structure that seamlessly forms to the existing landscape, the center holds strong lines separating the building and its surroundings, adding contrast to the two. Fiecely modernist, most notably in the bold viewing platform overlooking the mountains, the unity of the two worlds lies in the chosen materials for the site, working with the landscape, harmonizing the dramatic structure whilst maintaining a strong presence.
