The plan for the suburb of Stavanger included a sports centre and a hotel, however, the construction was never begun. The focal point in the façade lay in its comprehensiveness and continuity around the whole building. The FSA building was to be a vast construction without a clearly articulated volume, slightly diffused and rather vague. The uniform ribbed exterior creates a sense of wholeness with a clearly recognisable and consistent character. The construction was to be visually appealing and add value to the neighbourhood. The facades were conceived as a natural wood screen wrapping around the building. Alternating between opaque and open space, the screen becomes both a fenced enclosure and a refined shade from the sun.
