Dark and Arkitektpartner won the concept competition back in 2011 for Oslo Cancer Cluster Innovation park (OCCI), a building that opened its doors in the autumn of 2015 to the Norwegian Radium Hospital and the Institute for Cancer Research, as well as Ullern High School, a magnet school for students of biomedicine.

Our client, the organization of Oslo Cancer Cluster, take part in a global network of research institutions and would use the building and the highly skilled cluster of professionals, start-up businesses and the close connection to the cancer hospital to recruit internationally and facilitate the meeting between scientists with new ideas and investment capital in the OCCI incubator.

The school occupies the ground and first floors and is organized around two important common areas, a cafeteria and mediatheque. Other common areas include a multipurpose arena that features a telescopic tribune enabling it to be used as a grand auditorium for school gatherings and conferences.

Common areas will be accessible by both students and employees, and were conceived with the aim of encouraging dialogue and collaboration between the two.

The building volumes containing offices – on the second through the fifth and sixth floors – were designed for flexible workspaces adapted to both traditional office space and laboratories.

The outdoor landscape plan on the building's west side is based on the contours of the surrounding terrain, and stands in contrast to the tight structure of the building's volumes. The pedestrian path south of the building connects to the Radium Hospital and the Research Institute with OCCI.
