Prominent Norwegian architects, Arneberg and Poulsson won a competition to design the new headquarters for Telenor. The building was built as a fortress, a fireproof monument. As such, no wood was used in construction, and Norwegian marble, stone and cast concrete were the preferred materials used for the common areas.
Telegrafen – the iconic Nordic Baroque-Nouveau landmark was once Norway’s largest office building. Today, it consists of over 25,000 sqm of office and F&B space, spanning an entire city block on one of Oslo’s oldest streets, Kongens gate.
In Telegrafen, Oslo has a distinctive new destination in the heart of Kvadraturen; a place that will inspire people to connect, day and night, for business and leisure.
The dramatic grand hall, with its luxurious interiors and upmarket restaurant and bar offerings, will become a key meeting place in the city.
