Sirkus Shopping Centre

An old and slightly worn-down shopping centre in Trondheim has given way to a brand new, tasteful and hyper-modern shopping centre with 100 businesses and 81 flats.

According to architect Ole Wiig, STENI façade panels were chosen because the Sirkus Shopping Centre is a building with large wall surfaces, so it was important to choose a material that would not cost too much and which would stand the test of time. To break up the grey façades, they have added a number of horizontal red band (with lights) and used the same red colour around the windows.

“The urban spaces, shaped in the context of the entrance, create a different façade expression in addition to the variety and rhythm,” writes NSW in its project description.
