DogA - the Norwegian Centre for Design and Architecture was established by Norsk Form and the Norwegian Design Council in 2005 as a meeting place for design, architecture and related subject areas. The old transformer station in Hausmanns gate 16 is home to the two organisations. The centre also provides an arena for large and small architecture and design exhibitions, conferences and meetings, as well as a shop, a café & restaurant. Hausmanns gate 16 is included on the Cultural Heritage Management Office’s “yellow” list of buildings worth preserving. The property consists of several combined buildings and was originally designed as a transformer station. The buildings were constructed in 1898, 1917 and 1948, and converted in 2003-2005 by architects Jensen og Skodvin Arkitekter AS. DogA was awarded the National Building Prize in 2006, the City Prize in 2007 and St. Olav’s Rose, the hallmark of Norwegian heritage, in 2008.
