Entrance Blue

The planning process for 'Winter Village' in Norway is now in fully underway for what will become the world's largest indoor ski arena, another world first for Chapman Taylor.  Designed for both cross country and downhill skiing, it will also be Norway's first indoor ski arena.

The ski resort in Ødegården is situated next to Lørenskog train station and is planned to open before 2017. With the nearest indoor ski centre located across the Swedish border in Torsby, Selvaag's ski arena will give access to skiing in summer for local people as well as elite athletes who need all year round training locations for skiing.

The 140,000 m² complex will house a 37,000 m² ski resort. The cross-country trails will now be built over three floors giving skiers a total of 3,000 metres of cross country skiing. The facility will also include a conference hotel with 350 rooms, a service centre for skis and equipment, service rooms for clubs and teams, classrooms and offices, as well as commercial premises, and a sports academy for Norwegian ski sports.

Chapman Taylor has designed the Masterplan in collaboration with the renowned Norwegian architect Prof. Thomas Thiis-Evensen.  The developers recognize Chapman Taylor's world-beating masterplanning expertise, which is why we were selected to work on this ground-breaking Norwegian scheme.
