The Wedge

The final building in Barcode is also the smallest, the ground floor is only 5000 square meters. The building is on a wedge-shaped lot, which strengthens the irregular and different aspect to the Barcode line.  This wedge form is the reason for the building's nickname, The Wedge. The building is only 10 meters at its widest, and five meters at its thinnest. 

The facade in red bricks and New York inspired exits, meeting rooms that pop out of the facade is an originality The Wedge shares with the rest of Barcode. It stands out by being a building aimed at smaller businesses, unlike the offices of PwC, Deloitte and DNB in Barcode.

The building has a restaurant and lounge in the 10th floor, a joint roof top terrace with panorama views of the city and fjord. The basement has parking for electric cars and bikes to encourage environment friendly ways of transportation. The Wedge is an example of sustainable, energy saving architecture.
