Conference centre in the pipeline for west coast of Norway

A hotel and conference centre for Straume, located on the west coast of Norway, is scheduled to open in 2016.

Planning permission was granted earlier this year for the 220-room hotel and conference centre. The hotel is the first stage of a £90m proposal for a new town centre in Straume.

The proposals, which were submitted for a competition in 2012, also include retail units, an office tower and a new square. Haptic, an architecture practice based in London and Oslo and Nordic Office of Architecture, were granted the planning permission. 

Haptic and the Nordic Office of Architecture have also been appointed to design a new airport in Norway catering for visitors hoping to see the northern lights. It will be located on Norway’s west coast at Mo i Rana.
