Haptic and Nordic scoop Norway airport scheme

  • Comment

Haptic Architects and Nordic Office of Architecture have been chosen for a new airport at Mo i Rana in north west Norway

The project for Norwegian airport authority Avinor will create a new gateway for tourists visiting the remote West Coast region which is famous for its midnight sun and northern lights.

London and Oslo-based Haptic was chosen for the project after completing an initial feasibility study for the new airport in 2010.

The practice has been developing the scheme as part of a team featuring Norway’s largest studio – Nordic Office of Architecture.

The airport will include a terminal building, control tower, service buildings and other associated structures.

Haptic director Tomas Stokke said: ‘This was one of the first projects we undertook at Haptic, so we are especially pleased to see it coming to fruition. It is a unique opportunity to create a brand new airport in an amazing location.’

The two firms are also working with Grimshaw on a new £6 billion airport outside Istanbul which is planned to open in 2018.
