Snøhetta's mixed-Use Building in Oslo Performs with Net-zero Energy Usage.

Vertikal Nydalen, a ground-breaking mixed-use structure in Oslo, Norway, has been unveiled by Snøhetta. The proposal incorporates natural ventilation and a self-sufficient, streamlined climate system, pushing the frontiers of sustainable design. The project acts as the refurbished Nydalen district's new town square. It is located on the site of the former Gullhaug Torg, which served as a parking lot as the neighborhood changed from an industrial zone to a contemporary business center. A car-free zone with a town square and a high-rise skyscraper was one of the project's goals as it transformed the neighborhood into a bustling residential area.
