-Where’s the troll?
-There’s the troll!
-Ah! I missed the troll!
-No you didn’t, just follow the angle!
-The angle of the restaurant’s roof, that point’s the Troll Wall!
We’re in Norway, in case you haven’t already noticed. We have just visited the Troll Wall Restaurant not only because we are hungry (of design), but also because it’s one of the newest completed projects by Norwegian studio Reiulf Ramstad Architects.
The Troll Wall Restaurant is set in Norway’s Romsdal Valley, on the foot of the tallest vertical rock face in Europe. Pointy, metally, mentaly, glassy, classy with wooden warm details, gives a pleasure to the eye, both from the outside (it’s an eye-catcher in the region) and from the inside gives a breath-taking view of the cliffs.
-So there’s no real troll around?
-It depends, if you spam on account’s writing nonesense!
