Sørenga – with history on the walls

With the unique option to customise the surface, the STENI Vision façade panels really added something extra to this housing project.

The Norwegian architect firm MAD wanted to highlight the close relationship the new city district of Sørenga has with the sea. They chose to use a graphic element depicting a historical map of the Oslofjord.

“Instead of just choosing STENI Colour in another colour to contrast with the white, we wanted a more dynamic expression.”

From a distance, it creates a beautiful play of colours. Close up, it serves to form a direct link between the maritime location of the project and local charm.

“A material that is highly customisable, easy to work with and has a finish that is consistent with the high standards we set for every project in which MAD architects are involved.”

“It was important to us to find a material that would serve as an elegant contrasted to the dark and uniform brick cladding, which is a design requirement for buildings in the area.” – MAD
