Sharp red details

The new main building of the University College in Sogn and Fjordane, located in Sogndal, was officially initiated November 5th 2012. 


The building is 7600 square feet and houses among other things a large library with a wonderful view of the landscape. Already at the beginning of school, the students and the employed putted the building into use. One of the places where the students spends a lot of time is in the new library where the majority of the furniture is comprised of customized steel shelving systems framed with thick MDF end panels.


Sharp red details, such as the Eureka Gemino search station, are a cheerful feature in the otherwise pure styled and elegant interior.
