Eder Biesel Arkitekter‘s fish market gives the historic site a modern twist with an angular, daylight-filled “floating” volume. A glass wall on the ground floor provides a view out through the market hall. The building’s transparent facade provides shelter from wind and rain (which Bergen gets a lot of!), but on beautiful sunny days the space can be opened up to connect market activities outside to those occurring inside.
The use of granite flooring echoes the market’s original design, and the exterior color scheme was inspired by Bergen’s traditional color palette of ocher, white, and dark red wood. The renovation’s attention to detail ties the new building to the market’s history with contemporary flair.
