Linstow to relocate headquarters to Adamstuen
Linstow moves headquarters from Tjuvholmen to Adamstuen, where the company in close cooperation with OsloBygg will transform the former Veterinary College into an open and sustainable urban area.7. August 2023
- This is Oslo's most exciting urban development project, and the work will continue for many years to come. Hence, it`s a natural choice for us to relocate, both to be close to the project as such and because we want to be part of the new urban area that are to be created here, says Per Mortensen, CEO of Linstow.
The completion of the new offices is ongoing, and Linstow is scheduled to move in in mid-August.
Greener, warmer, and more creative
The former Veterinary College has so far been closed off to most people. On Friday June 16th , the outdoor area was officially opened by Governing Mayor of Oslo, Raymond Johansen, alongside OsloBygg and Linstow.
- The goal is to make this into a greener, warmer, and more creative area. It will be an open and inviting part of the city with, among other things, a garden and climate-ambitious development. We will offer meeting places, housing and services characterized by inclusion and diversity. The development of the area itself will be extensive and will be characterized by creativity, involvement, and interaction, says Mortensen.

Innovative urban development process
Through this project, Linstow and OsloBygg will create a new way of conducting urban development.
- By asking questions such as “How can we create a city floor that becomes the heart of the district?” - the result will be different than if you start directly by planning where, for example, the multipurpose hall should be located and how it should be designed, says Mortensen.
Now in the phase before the regulation, OsloBygg and Linstow will challenge professional communities to visualize how the overall goals for the area can be realized. Then, there will be a broad engaging of public stakeholders.
- If we are to create an area where people want to live, work, and meet, cooperation, participation and involvement from the district's various stakeholders is crucial. The local community, the district and involved parties will participate in a discussion on how the goals for the area best can be achieved, says Mortensen.
This process will result in an common knowledgebase to start off the regulatory process. Here, among other things, the question of a multipurpose hall will be addressed, but then one will look at how the hall also can contribute to fulfilling several of the objectives that have been set.
