The Arctic Salmon Center – A landmark on the ocean shore

STENI AS as Manufacturers

The building rises from a rock face jutting up from the ocean at Skutvik in Nordland. Steni Vision façade panels give the Arctic Salmon Center a quite unique expression that is really getting noticed.

Unique building with wow-factor

“It has been unbelievably exciting to work with such a special building in such a special place. This is a quite extraordinary building, that has been greeted with astonishment by my colleagues,” comments architect Peter W. Söderman at Norconsult AS.

“We chose Vision panels from Steni due to the printing possibilities – we could project an exciting and quite subtle print onto a large surface. The client wanted to have an expressive building that reflected what they are, which is of course an experience centre for the fishing industry.

Façade panels that can withstand a harsh environment

The print pattern on the façade panels creates an illusion of salmon scales, while the contrasting shading helps to downplay the building’s height and merge it into the landscape.

Söderman adds that the 60-year warranty was also an important factor in their choice.

“It’s an incredibly harsh location, exposed to incessant sea foam, wind and snow, and the building is also not easy to access. This made it really important to choose a robust façade material that could go long periods without maintenance.”

First-class architecture that blends in with the surroundings

“We are really proud to have been chosen as a supplier to a project that has been as thoroughly thought out from an architectural standpoint,” says Jan Terje Nielsen, Chief Communication & Brand Manager at Steni.

“The building has a unique expression, and blends in with the vulnerable landscape. The architects have done an outstanding job, with, for example, the colour-shading on the façade panels – which downplay the building’s height and volume.”

Steni’s printing technology makes it possible for architects, artists and illustrators to project their visions in an almost infinite scope.

“The Arctic Salmon Center is an outstanding example of this – the building has really become an elegant landmark on the Norwegian coast!”
