Gulatinget Visitor Centre will have an interactive multimedia exhibition and facilities to accommodate various groups of visitors. The room program includes facilities for visitors, as well as for cultural events. The building will house visitors for the exhibition and the park, work rooms for the historic play theatre group, conference facilities etc. It houses a cinema, a café and commercial area in the lobby, that is versatile to accommodate everyday use, as well in connection with private events.
After developing the floor plan and room program, architects were invited in an international competition to create designs for the centre, through “Doffin” – a database for architect competitions and other larger projects. The competition was successful. We got 44 entries from around the world, and chose in the end a winner, Cubus Architects from Bergen, Norway. The project is now in a process where a detailed cost overview is being developed, and funding is secured.
