Every site and every project is different. Topography, habitat, microclimate, nature spectacle, audience and users and of course budget all vary.
At Biotope we aim to connect people with nature through architecture. The places we live or visit are made richer with living nature. People care about what we can connect with. For years we have been developing and fine tuning our designs with a wide range of projects built in Norway. A distinctive nordic design background combined with our deep appreciation for nature has led us to develop unique architecture concepts. Our design solutions are open and inviting, aiming at creating a deeper connection with nature.
