Parallell – the first well-precertified project in Norway

The office building Parallell aims to promote the health and well-being of employees through its design, abundance of natural light and thought-trough solutions – because what is good for people is good for business. The project is the first in Norway to achieve precertification according to the WELL Building Standard.

Parallell has a distinct façade and is designed to maximize daylight on all floors. The building offers efficient and flexible floor plans, green solutions and modern features to facilitate the best possible work environment for its users. In addition to 13 floors of office space, the building will have a meeting room center and a roof terrace with city views, as well as bicycle parking and wardrobes. The building entrance will face a public square and the ground floor will include a canteen, café or other service facilities.

Located at Løren, within few minutes of walking distance from the public transportation hub Økern, Parallell is highly visible in its surroundings with its 16 floors. The areas are part of Hovinbyen, the largest urban development area in Oslo, where walking, bicyckling and public transportation will be the most attractive means of transportation.
