Nesflaten is also home to the offices of Hydro's hydroelectric facilities in Røldal-Suldal. Those facilities were built in the 1960s and designed by Geir Grung, the architect who also drew the functionalistic housing develepmont established at the same time. The hydropower station and the workers' dwellings are some of the finest and best-preserved examples of Norwegian functionalism.
