Henning Larsen to Design Cultural House in Kristiansund in Norway
Henning Larsen, together with partners Ramboll, HENT and OMKK Eiendom, is designing an Opera and Cultural House in Kristiansund on Norway’s west coast. Coinciding with Norway’s National Day, Henning Larsen has signed the contract to design a new opera and cultural house in Kristiansund, Norway. The project will be developed in close collaboration with partners HENT, Ramboll, and OMKK Eiendom.
Henning Larsen draws from extensive experience designing operas and cultural buildings around the world, including at Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre in Reykjavik, the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen, and the Hangzhou Yuhang Opera House in China, among others. In close collaboration with client advisors, user groups, and the client, the project group will develop a revised sketch project leading to a preliminary project. The first two phases are contracted via HENT, with Henning Larsen and Rambøll contributing expertise in all architectural and engineering disciplines.
Kristiansund, already home to a thriving cultural and musical scene, has Norway’s second-oldest opera house (established in 1928) and plays host to the annual Operafestukene, The Opera Weeks, festival.
