Ghilardi+Hellsten’s Quality Hotel Hasle Linie brings elegance and adaptability to Norway’s largest city. “This is really a very simple project,” says Franco Ghilardi, founder (with Ellen Hellsten) of Oslo-based Ghilardi+Hellsten, about their Quality Hotel Hasle Linie in the Hasle district of Norway’s capital. Over the past decade, the firm’s client, developer Höegh Eiendom, has been transforming this formerly industrial area into a mixed-use neighborhood of offices and housing. “The developer thought the hotel would be an interesting addition, to bring some life to a bedroom community and office park,” says Ghilardi about a part of town that, though 45 minutes’ walk from the center, is considered a far-flung suburb by residents of the city. “There’s an increasing effort to inject some urbanity and city life into these peripheral neighborhoods, where rents are far cheaper,” continues Ghilardi. “They’re trying to make them attractive, which means bringing in cafés, restaurants, etcetera.”
