Architecture and innovation that creates inspiring buildings, processes and interactions
On Friday, June 1st, InCube's representative, together with Stein Storsul on behalf of DH Eiendom (Builder for Innovation Campus Steinkjer) in a meeting with the Norwegian Directorate of Agriculture. Jørn Rolfsen, Managing Director of the directorate and Stein Storsul signed a memorandum of understanding on renting premises. This is a big day for us, as it shows that the interest in the campus is high and we get important and influential players into the facility. The Agriculture Directorate will have approx. 35 to 50 offices with associated facilities, thus making the plant bigger than originally planned.
The municipality of Oslos enterprise for Educational buildings, "Undervisningsbygg Oslo KF", in cooperation with several other actors, has completed a design competition for smart energy use and storage of solar energy. INCUBE was prized for the proposal based on reuse of electric car batteries as energy storage in buildings. Friday, June 1st, there was a prize giving ceremony and we are already in dialogue on concrete projects for implementing our proposal. The proposal from InCube was highlighted as particularly good in terms of implementation and innovation. CEO Dr Trygve Burchardt at INCUBE presented our solution for around 100 persons. Managing Director at Undevisningbygg awarded the prize of 150,000 kr, diploma and flowers to INCUBE. We are looking forward to further dialogue regarding the realization of the proposal.
INCUBE is an architectural office with a vision of creating inspiring and well-functioning buildings. Since its launch in 2013, the office has worked with on a number of projects in the field of education, housing, infrastructure and commercial buildings. In parallel to the design of buildings we also work with the development of concepts and products for the construction industry.
We are committed to good processes that lead to successful results for our clients and users. All phases require good planning, close dialogue with our customers, but different "tools" in both creative processes and structured problem solving. We switch between BIM, 3D modeling, hand sketches, model construction and graphic / electronic image processing. We try out innovations and material assemblies in the workshop and at full scale. To develop our own and others knowledge, we are also involved in teaching, both in the construction industry and at universities.
One of the fundaments since the start of INCUBE is our commitment to innovation. We have developed a model for innovation based on interdisciplinary cooperation. Our office has a unique competence in materials technology and renewable energy. This gives us the opportunity to create architecture that breaks down traditional barriers. We work closely with partners such as Enova, Innovation Norway and investors so that innovation, products and architecture can be financed and realized.
The core of INCUBE consists of a group of committed employees with a common desire to utilize interdisciplinary expertise to create new impulses in the architectural field. Our core competence is architecture and material technology at the masters and doctorate level.
