Sinsen Metro Station is a stop on the new Metro Ring in Oslo. The place had especially complex geometric relationships with the different surrounding areas. The platform is basically a fixed shape and is connected to the several different areas with nine entrances, all of them at different levels and with specific requirements regarding widths and wheelchair accessibility. All these entrances are treated like separate sites, each with a distinct architectural expression. An added quality of this strategy is that orientation, always a pressing problem at such places is eased because each entrance has its own separate identity.
