“They’re certainly attracting attention. In fact, people who come to viewings when the apartments are put up for sale actually ask if they are brand new blocks,” she says. “And it must be said that the apartment blocks do look almost like new buildings – on account of the new balconies and the colours that light up ‘the whole of’ Bergen.”

A lot of people think the Solheimslien apartment blocks are brand new
In addition to the new façade panels and the new colours, the residents now have extended balconies, roof terraces that get plenty of sun, new air conditioning units, improved emergency exit routes and new windows – in addition to measures to improve the outdoor areas.
Some of the renovation costs are being covered by the sale of 39 new basement and roof apartments. Façade panels from Steni and post-insulation upgraded the apartment blocks to energy class 1, and the cooperative has also received subsidy from Enova.
