Degree of Freedom is an international civil and structural engineering practice with offices in Oslo, Valencia and Athens. We design bridges, buildings and special structures, in timber, steel, and concrete. We are architecture oriented and innovative.
DOF has been working with the design team of this competition in order to deliver a building that can become a modern icon of sustainability, efficiency and elegance at the center of Oslo. The goals for the competition were to design a plus energy building, with an outstanding Breeam-Nor rating, with an exemplary cradle to cradle construction, following the environmental criteria of FutureBuilt.
The structural system adopted for the Lilletorget 1 building seeks a highly rational use of steel, concrete and timber elements, assembled in an efficient way to resist the vertical and lateral loads. The primary structural system for the 120m high tower will be a concrete core and upper outrigger and belt truss, forming a stiff header. The typical floors are solved with cross laminated timber panels that transfer the vertical loads via steel beams to the vertical circular hollow steel columns and the reinforced concrete cores.
The main goals of the structural system are the following:
