The plenary meeting hall is situated in the conical form that is located on the edge of a steep incline, and marks the building's most important function. Its form is visible from the Karasjok town centre, but not from the main entrance of the Sámi Parliament building. This form is reminiscent of a Sámi tent, the "lávvu," which has a half-timbered framework that meets at a point at the apex, and has a tight-fitting fabric covering. Within the Sámi Parliament building the form is divided into two by a corridor or bridge made of glass, which is wedged in the plenary meeting hall and connected to the hallway in the semicircular office section. Situated above the corridor are two elliptical fields of glass, where one is a smaller reflection of the other.
