Storehagen Atrium

Storehagen Atrium is a 5000 m2 large governmental building hosting governemental institutions like the national Lotteri- og Stiftelsestilsynet, the Child protection and the regional Cultural Department as well as two banks. The challenge was to create a common identity while respecting the brand of each entity. The selected signage design uses the simplicity and clarity of the underground signage. The idea was inspired by the fact that Storehagen Atrium will be an important hub in Førde, a city with the desire to become a metropolis. Strong colors and graphical shapes dedicated to each floor and institution were designed following the principles of Universal design; that they should make it easy for any user, like people with visual impairment, to find their way. The mission included exterior and interior signs.
