"Festplassen i Honningsvåg" (2 of 5)
The town hall and cinema are typical examples of Norwegian architecture from the 1950s. The complex is comprised of two building components - the cinema is seen on the left in the photograph and the town hall on the right - with a shared entrance in the centre. In this building complex there is a modern form of expression combined with more traditional elements, something that is typical of both reconstructed architecture and 1950s architecture in general. Clearly defined volumes make up the complex and the cinema's schematic façade partitioning, which emphasises the constructive, is a modernistic feature. However, more traditional forms and materials are used, for example the slate covered hipped roof.
