Snøhetta designs Summit Bar in Radisson Blu hotel in Oslo

Snøhetta also designed all fixed furniture including the bar, glass shelf, couches and tables, rails and signage.

Rezidor Hotel Group renovated Summit Bar, located on the 21st floor of the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in Oslo, Norway. Snøhetta oversaw the redesign.

Measuring 140 square meters (1,507 square feet), Summit Bar has a wall that reflects the space’s light out in the space. To keep the focus on the view, lighting in the ceiling is kept to a minimum. Smaller lighting fixtures in the seating areas contribute to the overall intimate atmosphere.

Key elements also include an abstract landscape of sculptural forms, as well as seating areas placed on two levels. The spaces in Summit Bar are accessible via ramps linking the various levels. The floor towards the window façade is raised, giving views regardless of where one is located.

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Materials were chosen in a palette close to nature, from a blue wall towards the façade of the space, to a brass wall resembling fire.

In addition to the interior design, Snøhetta also designed all fixed furniture including the bar, the glass shelf, couches and tables with lighting, rails and signage.
