Sørenga – right next to the Oslofjord

The “new” Oslo city district of Sørenga includes numerous blocks of flats right by the sea, with shops, cafés and other services on the ground floor of the buildings.

The Norwegian architect firm MAD was given the task of designing this “new” city district. For the façades of these new buildings, the firm was focused on finding a material that would work as an elegant contrast to the dark external brick cladding on the buildings at Sørenga.

Steni Vision fit the bill perfectly. We used the panels to supplement the Steni colour panels we also used in the inner courtyard, as well as in entrances and portals. With the unique option to customise the surface, the Steni Vision panels really added something extra to the entire project.​ MAD​

 Historical nautical chart of the Oslofjord were printed on the Steni Vision panels.

“From a distance, it’s a beautiful play of colours. Close up, it serves to form a direct link between the maritime location of the project and local charm. Steni Vision is highly customisable, easy to work with and has a finish that is well consistent with the high standards we set for all our projects .” – MAD.
