The Unsö Extension is an addition to the Gardemoen airport for Non Schengen destinations.
The extension is a 190 meter long four-storey building of 25 000 m2 with a bespoke façade system with vertical elements and glass surfaces that angles in and out respectively to form a wave pattern vertically.
The unitized façade consist of rather large units, approx. 2, 5 x 6 meters and is a LS3000 Composite hybrid composit/alu façade.
30 % of the façade is carried out in a bespoke EW30 fire system that was designed and tested by the Lindner Scandinavia project team. A large challenge of the project was to build in an airport in use.
