Granite Facades with the Rhythm of Swing Part 2

Updated:2013-02-19 15:05:46
Apart from the part one that we introduced about the granite facades in Norway, we will provide you more information about this building with you. Look at the following image firstly!

The roof has a number of different levels, connected by stairs and also made of granite. The roof-top terrace offers a grand view of the fjord and the mountains beyond.
The steps alongside the building also attract visitors as they are an important connection between the higher-level districts and the bank. The glazed corners and elongated picture windows open the cultural center optically and invite passers-by to come inside.

Particularly in the evening and in winter the warm atmosphere and ample wooden interior construction invite visitors inside.

But 3XN wouldn’t be 3XN were the fa?ade merely clad in right-angled stone slabs. Indeed, they chose the form of a flying trapeze. To a visitor looking up from below the lines merge to waves. Fitting for the jazz festival one might say the granite swings. The stone surface is flamed making it look pixely. The glazed cutouts are windows of office rooms.

The cultural center has a floor surface of some 6,000 m2 over 3 floors. Its heart is a music- or theater hall. Add to that a surface of some 3,000 m2 steps or seating leading down to ground level.
The citizens of Molde have obviously accepted their cultural center even if it sticks out like a sore thumb in clashing style. The name, however drew some critical voices: “Plassen” merely means “Place”.
