Named The Plus, the factory development, which will include a visitor centre and a 300-acre park, is set to be built within a forest near the village of Magnor in the east of Norway.
The building is constructed from local timber and low-carbon concrete with recycled reinforcement steel. It will be powered by an energy supply system that combines 1,200 solar panel and geothermal wells, while surplus heat created during the production process will be used to heat the building.
According to the architecture studio, this means that the building's energy requirement is 90 percent lower than an equivalent factory.
Materials will be moved between the facilities by a fleet of all-electric Tesla trucks.
