Designer: Eriksen + Skajaa
Location: Bergen, Norway
Bergen International Festival is a minimalist design created by Norway-based designer Eriksen + Skajaa. The festival’s former premises were in an older bank building with large individual offices and for their new offices wanted open plan offices for increasingly project based work. The designers have therefore prepared a project with a high degree of flexibility. The use of the premises changes during the year with a shift from planning period to the festival period in which both the activity and number of employees increases. It requires flexibility both in the workforce and in the use of the premises. They also proposed to facilitate the ability to organize small concerts and exhibitions in the new premises and that way linking the festival as an organization closer to the events they hold.
