SORIA MORIA GETS NEW VUE FROM THE GROUND UP

Built in 1928 as a Christmas gift to the residents of Torshov, a borough of Oslo, Norway, the historic Soria Moria building complex has since served as a cultural hub for cinema, music, theatre and literature. In 2014, co-owners Karl-Henning Svendsen and Olaf Masterman Loly took over and refurbished what would become HVASKJER Torshov, the restaurant/music venue inside Soria Moria. Loudspeakers from VUE Audiotechnik became an integral part of the renovation.

HVASKJER Torshov combines a restaurant with a wood-fired grill; beer, wine and cocktail bars; a dancing area; two concert venues; and an arcade/gaming room. Drawing on his previous experience with other venues in Oslo, Loly called upon avon lydinstallasjon (AS) to handle the installation. “We chose avon as our integrator of sound and lighting systems because they have delivered good, reliable systems in some of our other venues here in Oslo,” says Loly. “We have a good common understanding of doing business, plus avon has good references in other venues throughout Oslo and Trondheim, which is important to us.”
