The Borgen Community Centre is located in a suburban area in Asker close to Oslo, the capital of Norway. The Borgen School was built in 1970 and retrofitted and converted in 2005 to Borgen Community Centre, a place for the whole neighbourhood. The Centre contains public services and private organisations. The main building contains a secondary school and facilities for health-care services and leisure-time arrangements. One goal was to increase the possibilities for the local community to use the facilities, and thereby obtain social and economic benefits.
