Nominated for Betongtavlen for the Second Consecutive Year

Nominated for Betongtavlen for the Second Consecutive Year For the second year in a row, a church building designed by Hille Melbye Arkitekter and Einar Dahle Arkitekter has been nominated for the prestigious Betongtavlen award. While Teglen in Spikkestad received the award in 2019, Flekkerøy Church is competing for the prestigious architectural prize this year. The Norwegian Concrete Association and the Norwegian Association of Architects annually award the Betongtavlen as an honorary prize to buildings where concrete has been used in an environmentally, aesthetically, and technically excellent manner. This year, the award will be presented in connection with the Norwegian Concrete Day on October 28-29.

“It’s absolutely fantastic that we are nominated for the second year in a row together with Einar Dahle Arkitekter for one of the church buildings we are most proud of. Flekkerøy Church has already become an institution in the local community, and satisfied users are of course the most important thing for us. But we also say thank you for such an honor to be nominated alongside such fantastic projects,” says Kaja Melbye of Hille Melbye Arkitekter.

In addition to Flekkerøy Church, Deichman Bjørvika (Lund Hagem Arkitekter/Atelier Oslo) and the rehabilitated headquarters of Mills in Grünerløkka, Oslo, are nominated.

Last year, Hille Melbye received the Betongtavlen for Teglen Church along with the underwater restaurant Under at Lindesnes (Snøhetta).
