Award Entry

RRA create meaningful architecture that is both challenging and demanding 

Reiulf Ramstad Architects (RRA) is an independent architectural firm with a high level of expert knowledge and a distinct ideology. The firm has shown a multitude of approaches in solving assignments, both nationally and internationally and have received numerous prizes and awards for their projects.

The studio has completed projects of all scales and has employees with the experience, knowledge and creativity to solve various assignments in an innovative, sustainable and qualitative manner.

Architecture is an artistic discipline concerning purpose and space, an academic subject that covers vast areas; from pure engineering and physics to fine art and the awareness of space.

Creating meaningful architecture is both challenging and demanding. Architecture creates a specific space in people’s lives in a way that secures their sense of belonging, as well as making it possible for the place itself to endure through time. This makes it viable for RRA to consider architecture as a significant factor in social affairs. It is the aim of RRA to use its academic resources to create an innovative and contemporary, yet timeless form of architecture.

With its architecture, RRA wish to develop projects that are well-adjusted to their context and who represent values of utility as well as high artistic quality. By using its knowledge and qualification, RRA strives to accomplish an architecture that is unique. All of RRA’s design is related to the consideration of landscape as the contextual raw material.

A landscape may contain a diverse character in the form of being a physical, descriptive room as well a cultural framework. RRA work with demanding tasks of landscape design in several of the office’s current assignments. The office has completed projects that include urban development, parks, river landscapes and the transformation of cultivated and natural landscapes.

Examples of work include: Kindergarten Fagerborg, Oslo, Norway (completed Dec. 2010); Apartment building Korsgata 5, Oslo, Norway (completed April 2010); National Touristroute Trollstigen, Rauma, Norway (to be fully completed 2012) and Knarvik Church (competition winner, under planning - to be completed 2013).
