A BUILDING I LIKE


I like this building, but I'm not quite sure why. It's really supposed much too boring and square for my taste, and not at all coherent with the principle of open form. 

Could be the Filippa K shop on the ground floor, but I don't think so. There's something about the fa├žade, perhaps the verticality of it, which is established by the french balconies that replace the windows. The height is also quite good, very well-adapted to the building's neighbours. And of course the mixed use, with both space for retail and apartments. Still... Hm.

The girl in the picture is my dear friend Hildegunn, who is moving to Bergen with her lovely boyfriend, Ole Christian, in only a few weeks. Joy!
