Located in the center of Tromsø, Kystens Hus – the „Coastal Seafood Center in Northern Norway“ - is a flagship building showcasing the country‘s powerful fishing industry. Envisaged as hub for information and business related to the fisheries, research and development, and tourism the facility‘s primary purpose is to showcase the city‘s and the wider coastal region‘s cultural tradition, natural wealth, and economic drive. The permeable, fully glazed ground level is conceived as an extension of the public realm. The center‘s upper part accommodates office spaces and is clad in a mutli-faceted envelope reminiscent of the rock formations lining the northern Norwegian coast.
