Paal J Kahrs Arkitekter AS was established in Bergen in 1986.
Since then, the office has carried out a number of projects of different design and assignment types and has won recognition and awards for these.
The range extends from shopping malls, university and cultural buildings, traffic terminals, museums and theaters, science centers, tourist resorts, offices and hotels, residential buildings, tourist cabins, to small hydro-power plants, funiculars, interior and furniture design. Design of the torch for the Lillehammer Olympics, 94 also came out from our office.
