Solberg Spinderi has important cultural heritage for the area and is one of the best-preserved industrial buildings in the country, bearing witness to the period of industrial prosperity in the region as a textile producer.

The project includes the establishment of 66 modern apartments and retail area in harmony with a historic building. The new architectural elements will be district and will not compete with the original architecture, and must be made of materials typical of their period. The cultural environment contains listed industrial buildings which are a rare example of the development of Norwegian industrial architecture with important historical heritage for the municipality.

The intention is to preserve the distinct character of the original brick building, and create new contrasts through the choice of materials such as exposed concrete, wood and neutral glass. Balconies on the top floor are carried through roof niches, which do not break with the original roof shape, while new terraces on the ground floor come into direct contact with outdoor areas around the building.

The project is well anchored in the natural area with an open stream that partially flows under the building. The stream is considered a unique, natural quality and an important characteristic of the project.

In the northern part of the property, where the current car park is located, an open car park without a roof will be built on 2 floors for the residents. The building is adapted to the existing terrain and designed so that it does not dominate the surroundings
