He returned to Venice in 2000, invited by the Norwegian Nationalmuseum, as part of the group representing Norway in the Architecturebiennale with the project “Multi-pli-city”. Surnevik`s studio was founded in Oslo in 2011. Studioprojects are developed by Espen Surnevik in collaboration with his students. He focuses on innovating and continuing the Norwegian regional Architecture-tradition. Central elements are to develop projects which have intuitive and specific links to the place, its traditions and its landscape. The studio develops projects where construction and space have a unity in which program and functions find their exact place. The projects are often planned in a historic context which is seen as a opportunity to tell a story of our time and the past. Surnevik regards architecture to be an expression which can tell us how society have been thinking during history. The projects have a detail-focus, including landscape and interior. The goal is that all projects should express a Whole, where the overviewing conceptual idea is represented in the small details and vice versa.
