Degree of Freedom is an international civil and structural engineering practice with offices in Oslo, Valencia, Gdansk and Athens. We design bridges, buildings and special structures, in timber, steel, and concrete. We are architecture oriented and innovative.
Base Property AS is planning a high-rise building of 26 floors in the center of Stavanger. An international architectural competition has been held, and Degree of freedom assisted Snøhetta with their entries for the competition.
The proposed support system for the high house in Stavanger seeks a rational use of steel, concrete and wood, assembled into an efficient system to withstand vertical and horizontal loads. The main bearing is the core concrete pillar in the middle of the building. The steel columns in the façade, lower craft structure and upper craft construction in the facade will carry the decks and provide additional stiffness and redundancy to the building. There are no columns in the premises except those integrated in the facade. All decks above the ground will be made with CLT (cross-laminated wood), which spans between the steel beams.
