“Sebastian Behmann notes that ‘Designing a structure of this scale and purpose was like developing characters in a play or novel; we considered the relation of the elements to each other, the setting, the overall story we wanted to tell. Now it is Fjordenhus itself that will carry the narrative into the future.’”
