The Twist is partly a work of art and partly a feat of engineering.

-The Kistefos Museum was our entry to the Norwegian market, the designer colleagues of Baumetall who originally dreamed the museum, later become the part of bim.GROUP. The Novergian market has a lot of potential, Nordic design is world famous for a reason says Zsolt Ballay, COO of the hungarian founded bim.GROUP. Innovation and sustainability are the most important values for us when designing something new. We believe these values are especially important in Norway as well. We are eager to use our expertise, work together with local design studios, and strengthen our presence in the country.

Bim.GROUP has been operating in business for over 30 years and had the opportunity to work on around 3000 projects so far, including high-profile investments in the hungarian capital city in Budapest and also in various European locations.

Work of art – and a feat of engineering.
The Twist-museum is designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and located in the Kistefos Museum’s 270,000 square meter sculpture park. The new structure – which was described as an β€œart museum, sculpture, path in the landscape, and bridge” – spans over the Randselva river.
The Twist houses three galleries dedicated to contemporary art. The aerea used by the sculpture garden is split by the river, so BIG decided to connect the two halves with the museum itself. The twisted design of the building enables it to rest on riverbanks of different heights. The Twist is partly a work of art and partly a feat of engineering.
BIG’s founder and creative partner, Bjarke Ingels, said the design had the potential to reimagine the museum experience, saying: “The museum visit itself will be a bridge, not a goal.

The responsibility of our team of more than 100 people is to create the perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics in main disciplines of architectural design while paying attention to sustainability, effective operation, and value. We design buildings, steel and reinforced concrete structures, industrial facades, complex electrical and engineering infrastructures of buildings, which later manifest into monumental stadiums, industrial complexes, residential and office buildings, athletic and leisure centers. Value Engineering is the key to success at our Hungarian and international projects. We apply BIM and parametric design methodology to decision support or free-form structure design and treat our customers’ challenges as our own.
