The assignment was to build a monastery on the island of Tautra in Trondheimsfjord, Norway. This new monastery for 18 nuns needed Cistercians spaces next to a chapel and all the facilities so that they could live permanently, as production areas, retirement, etc..
The original program required was reduced by 30 percent as it eliminated almost all the runners in the design space. This is because analyzing how it works the monastery nuns usually stay in one of four main areas, occupy the spaces themselves as brokers. Most spaces will occupy one at a time and have different uses.
There are also needs for flexibility and natural light for each space. For this the horizontal plant was ordered in a system of spaces with different sizes are connected at the corners and have yards of light between them.
