Rema 1000’s expansion is designed to function as a central warehouse for the whole of Norway. The facility is divided into 4 temperature zones and is partly automated.
The facades of the warehouse are clad with smooth steel sandwich panels in 3 complementary light and grey colours. With the darkest colour at the bottom and the gradually lighter interplay of colour, the building blends into its surroundings. As a contrast, the administration building has a raw white design with a floating walkway and rooftop terrace.
With the thoroughfare and the almost double-height glass sections at the bottom, the building appears almost to levitate. This is complemented by vertical load-bearing lines and an almost playful facade in which structures of 3 varying depths uphold the building’s raw facade expression. The contrast between the buildings means that they complement each other, the cliffs and the hilly forest area.
