Oslo Opera House

August 12 2010 — by Keith Bradshaw
We were lucky enough to have a full front and back of house tour of the Oslo Opera House designed by Norwegian architects Snøhetta and opened in 2008. It is a very similar scale to the Copenhagen Opera House which we made with Henning Larsen Architects in 2005.

The relationship between the building and the water is very strong and creates a great public space. The main house contains a simple, elegant chandelier. The whole house is lit with LED - a very ambitious undertaking- with lighting design by the Engineering firm Ingeniør Per Rasmussen AS.
