lillestrøm bicycle hotel by Various architects opens to the public in Norway
With the increasing popularity of cycling in the city, Norway has set ambition goals to create an environmental and sustainable future: today, a number of railway stations will have a bicycle hotel to promote that particular mode of transportation. One great example is the Lillestrøm bicycle hotel, completed by Norwegian studio Various architects, and which first opened in October 2016.
Various建筑事务所与 ROM Eiendom AS、挪威国家铁路公司合作，希望这个项目对环境做出积极的贡献。事实上，Lillestrøm自行车酒店通过提供公共的屋顶释放出它占据的空间，它直接连接到主火车站广场。
Various architects, in collaboration with ROM Eiendom AS and the Norwegian national railways, hopes to make a positive contribution to the surroundings with this project. Indeed, the Lillestrøm bicycle hotel gives back the space it has occupied by providing a public rooftop which directly connects to the main train station square.
The bicycle hotel is a free-form wooden roof that rests on a boxed building covered in glass and a concrete base. The transluscent façades allow natural light to filter through during the day, transforming the building into a glowing hub during the evening and providing a continuously changing visual experience between day and night. The sloping wooden roof creates a dynamic single structure and provides an inviting public access to the top — where a furnished and vegetated rooftop offers a panoramic view towards Lillestrøm city. Together, the glassed box and roof create an intimate yet open public space.
The character of the building is influenced by the surrounding context with its exposed and raw materials such as concrete, U-glass, steel, wood and green sedum. Fair faced concrete is used for internal floors and walls, exposing the roughness of the material ; the external façades are constructed using U-glass profiles, which are self-supporting and require no metal profiles; wood is finally included in the roof surface, furnishing, and main structure.
The building is also conceived for minimal energy consumption. During the day, additional lighting is not necessary thanks to natural sunlight; at night, an artificial lighting system is used for both interior illumination and the surroundings. Furthermore, natural crossed ventilation is possible through the gaps between the glass façade – requiring no additional system.
