Reiulf Ramstad Architects have designed the Troll Wall restaurant, a first prize winner of an invited competition. The restaurant is an iconic imposing building that has abstracted its rocky landscape with a front elevation reminding us of the 1958 Expo Philips Pavilion by Le Corbusier. Another modern classic.

‘It’s a new cursor at the foot of the Troll Wall; The architecture of the new visitors centre next to E139 is an outcome of the sites` close connection to the impressive mountain wall, Europe’s tallest vertical, overhanging rock face in The Romsdal Valley. The Romsdal valley has some of the tallest, sheerest cliffs in Europe and is a popular place for BASE jumping including “birdmen” jumping off cliffs in Wingsuits! This location allows for an exciting setting for the new service- and information center. RRAs proposal is carefully planned in relation to the Troll Wall. At the same time it is building a character and identity which in itself will be an attraction in the region. The building has a simple, though flexible plan, with a characteristic roof that has its character from the majestic surrounding landscape. These simple ways of design gives the building its character and identity that makes the Service centre an eye-catcher and an architectural attraction in the region.’
