The story of Pallas started as a road marking company in the early 1990s.
The first property was purchased in 1994, and since then the four brothers, who today constitute the foundation wall of Pallas as, have built up the Skostredet where they own most of the properties.
The aim was to create a diverse and authentic area with arts and culture as the main components, where areas such as Covent Garden in London have been a great inspiration.
Pallas is today owned by the same four brothers. Four different brothers who all have great thoughts for the street and the surrounding area. The common denominator is that they think big of all four. One can clearly see the different personalities manifest differently in Skostredet, which has created a great diversity. Now we are many more people, and two dogs. We have grown into a large and creative team of creators who work for what we love so much: to grow our ‘little’ Skostredet further.
What used to be a crowded street with little facilities has now grown to become one of Bergen’s main destinations in the arts and culture. Because in the area around Vågsbunnen, everything from cafés, galleries and bars to office communities, nightclubs and restaurants.
In addition to promoting art and culture, Pallas’s vision is to let “young and hungry” get a chance to rent or start up in Skostredet. This vision is Skostredet, as we know it today, a direct result of.
“Space for history. Room for new life” sums up what Pallas team believes. Namely, each place is unique and should be associated with the properties found in its history and in the surrounding neighborhood. We want to highlight the area with its history, we want to create a history and experience that positively affects everyone. Every place in Skostredet is unique. Behind the facade are great people and lots of life.
