This project of dwellings is inserted into the Barcode plan, designed in 2003 by a-lab in partnership with MVRDV for the new Bjorvika district. The plan proposes a distance between the volumes oscillating between 10 and 15 m, for heights ranging from 50 to 60 m, which obliges the buildings to be sculpted to let in sunlight. The architects justify the fragmentation of the area into long narrow plots arguing the need to preserve the permeability between the maritime boundary –converted to a leisure and cultural space, with the construction of the Opera and the Munch Museum– and the transport infrastructures located to the north of the Urban Plan.
