It’s a new cursor at the foot of the Troll Wall; The architecture of the new visitors
center next to E139 is an outcome of the sites close connection to the impressive mountain wall, one of Norways many nature attractions.
The building has a simple, though flexible plan, with a characteristic roof that has its character from the majestetic surrounding landscape. These simple ways of design gives the building its character and identity that makes the Service center an eye-catcher and an architectural attraction in the region.
The new service- and information center is located in the Romsdals Alps directly below “Trollveggen”; The Troll Wall - Europe's tallest vertical, overhanging rock face in The Romsdal Valley. On the opposite side of the valley, the Romsdalshorn peak towers to a height of 1,555 metres. Trollveggen is the craddle of mountain climbing sports in Scandinavia, which boast some of the world's most difficult climbs. The Romsdal valley has some of the tallest, sheerest cliffs in Europe and is a popular place for BASE jumping including "birdmen" jumping off cliffs in Wingsuits! This location allows for an exciting setting for the new service- and information center. RRAs proposal is carefully planned in relation to the Troll Wall. At the same time it is building a character and identity which in itself will be an attraction in the region.
