A Norwegian architecture firm tackles an exotic design commission: a new foreign ministry office in Sri Lanka.
Working on the office of the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Colombo, Sri Lanka, presented a unique opportunity for Dis. interiørarkitekter, an interior design company based in Oslo. Dis. developed a concept that honors Norwegian design and is appropriate for a variety of public visits and functions: the interiors contrast classic Scandinavian style with traditional motifs of Sri Lankan culture, underlining the idea of two nations intersecting in a single location.
