The Cultural Center of Stjørdal will be an important node, both locally and in the region. The center will become an inviting place for all people interested in culture in one way or another—a building where people of all kinds can explore and develop their abilities and talents. With its church, the cultural center will function as a worthy venue for all kinds of ceremonies for the inhabitants. What is more, the visitors at the hotel will contribute to vitalizing the building and the park. The project is anchored in and inspired by the history and culture of its location. At the same time, the architecture should convey its modern function and the pulse of the time and place. The center will serve as a platform for a broad cultural concept, including a wide range of art, dance, music, film, and other media. The Cultural Center of Stjørdal is designed to be an inspiring place that provides the visitors with experiences and opportunities, thus contributing to a rich locational, cultural and architectural experience.
