In addition to covering various functions of public visits the interior should present and emphasize a Nordic style. We had never worked with an official residence, and the client wanted to use this as an advantage and not put so many constraints so we would be able to see this with new eyes. The main objective of the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in all of its projects is that most of the furniture, lighting and other essential elements shall promote Norwegian design.

Large rooms with dark wood and hard surfaces became the contrast to colorful furniture with a light and soft look.
