With theatrical Art Deco finishes, Sommerro provides high-end venues for meetings and events that stay true to the building’s 1930s roots as the Oslo Light Works (Oslo Lysverker). Sommerro’s third floor has eight historical venues equipped with the latest meeting technology in an atmosphere inspired by significant figures linked to the building’s heritage. In addition, Sommerro has a 200-seat gilded theater with a separate entrance, dressing room and bathroom facilities, as well as a separate collection of vibrant living rooms. To Søstre (Two Sisters), the hotel’s tea salon, is also available for special occasions.

Director’s Office (Direktør kontoret): Suitable for meetings of 16 or fewer, the Director’s Office was originally the office for the director of the power company and boasts original walnut paneling, an Art-Deco-inspired walnut ceiling, vintage director’s desk, and Nordic design business chairs and boardroom table.

Four Historical Boardrooms (Poulsson, Grimsrud, Gulbrandsen, and Prytz): Each of the four historical boardrooms is named after a significant artist from Norway’s Art Deco period. The interiors feature works from the celebrated artists in each of their designated rooms. Along with Nordic-inspired business chairs and conference tables, the walls are lined with walnut paneling. Each 312 sq ft boardroom comes equipped with AV-equipment, WiFi, and whiteboards.

-Poulsson Boardroom: This room is named after textile artist Else Poulsson, whose wonderful designs can also be found in Oslo City Hall
-Grimsrud Boardroom: This room salutes Ragnar Grimsrud, one of Norway’s most celebrated ceramic artists.
-Gulbrandsen Boardroom: This room is named after a significant artist from Norway’s Art Deco period—in this case, Nora Gulbrandsen, a much-loved ceramicist and Norway’s first female industrial designer.
-Prytz Boardroom: This room is named after goldsmith and applied artist, Jacob Prytz, who was one of the leading figures in the Norwegian handicraft and design community.

Tavern Hall (Krohgsalen): For large-scale events, the Tavern Hall was once the employee canteen for the former power company and now boasts elaborate ceiling frescoes created by Norwegian artist Per Krohg, best known for his 1952 mural for peace that was gifted to the United Nations Security Council, as well as oak flooring. The Tavern Hall provides 2,637 sq ft of event space with separate kitchen and small bar.

Borgfeldt Suite (Borgfeldtstuen): Named after Asbjørg Borgfeldt, the Norwegian sculptor whose wonderfully detailed reliefs adorn the pillars at the entrance of the building, Borgfeldtstuen boasts oak parquet flooring, a vibrant sunset-inspired color palette, and natural light. With 1,743 sq ft of space, Borgfeldt Suite can accommodate five long boardroom tables, and also features a lounge and private bar area.

Light Works Scene (Lysverker Scene): With 3,229 sq ft, Lysverker Scene is a 200-seat theater that pays homage to Hollywood's glamorous golden age and the great European opera houses. The curved podium showcases stardust lighting and lavender tones inspired by Norwegian artist Harald Sohlberg's painting of a mermaid emerging from the fjord in the moonlight. The theater space comes with its own backstage entrance, bar, and dressing room area—and is ideal for special events and performances.

To Søstre (Two Sisters) tea salon: Designed as a warm and welcoming space, To Søstre is awash with natural light and greenery. Bespoke upholstered seating in a playful rabbit-print, inspired by Norwegian artist Gerhard Munthe, make the space inviting. Enjoy a traditional English Afternoon Tea with a Sommerro twist while listening to the self-playing Steinway grand piano, one of the few in Norway. A champagne trolley makes the rounds for those wishing to imbibe something stronger. The 2,852 sq ft salon can be rented for private events, and is perfect for smaller concerts, launches, receptions and celebrations.

Sommerrostuene (the Summer Rooms): Whether hosting an intimate get-together or a big bash, the Sommerrostuene venues can be arranged exclusively to celebrate in style, whatever the need.
