AHMM/Haptic team shortlisted for £160 million Norwegian jackpot

  • Comment

A team led by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) has been named as one of five finalists in the contest to design a £160 million convention centre in Brunstad, Norway

The practice is collaborating with emerging London and Oslo-based outfit Haptic Architects, landscape stars Gross.Max, engineers AKT II and Buro Happold as well as theatre specialists Charcoal Blue on the bid for the new Oslofjord Convention Centre.

The proposed 2,500-seat conference centre, with associated restaurants, bars, six hectare sports-park and 80,000m² of hotel and apartment accommodation, will sit on a ‘prominent location both culturally and physically within Brunstad’ and expand the existing conference facilities on the site.

The AHMM team - the only British architects to have been shortlisted (see full list below) - will now submit a detailed design for the project with the winner due to be announced in October 2011. 

The victorious team will develop the convention centre in stages up to 2020.

Other teams shortlisted are:

- Niels Torp Arkitekter (Oslo) / Bjørbekk & Lindheim
- Dyrvik Arkitekter (Oslo) / Østengen & Bergo
- Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter (Oslo) / Kristiansen og Bernhardt arkitektur / Asplan Viak / KanEnergi
- A-lab (Oslo) / COWI
