Venstres hus - office building

Venstres hus is one of the first buildings from the 1950s in Norway to have been renovated into a passive energy building. The cladding is now dark and behind it a 20-cm layer of insulation material was installed to improve the building’s energy performance. The building was completed in 1954 and serves as the headquarters of the Liberal (Venstre) party, the oldest party in Norway.

Ruukki supplied black aluminium façade profiles made especially for this building. They came from the factory made-to-measure and ready to install in exactly the right place.

“I’m really pleased with Ruukki’s product and above all with the personal service. This clinched the order for Ruukki. The result is exactly the same type of façade that the building originally had when it was first completed. Ruukki’s product and service met our expectations 100%,” says Nils Gunnar Dietz, general manager of the building.
