Overlooking the fjord and the city center, Tjuvholmen Icon Tower is part of the new waterfront development in the center of Oslo. The tower represents a significant and iconic landmark as it identifies the new part of the city and announces the gateway to the new Astrup Fearnley Museum.
It also functions as an observation tower with an inbuilt public elevator, giving both locals and tourists the spectacular view of the capital and its surroundings.
The elevator cabin accommodates 6 persons and rises to about 55 meters above street level. At this level it makes a standstill for a few minutes, before slowly returning to the ground. It is specially designed and manufactured with curved glass walls and a glass roof in order to maximize the view.
