VOLDELØKKEN APARTMENTS

Facts | Architects: Reiulf Ramstad | Location

VOLDELØKKEN APARTMENTS

A backyard infill apartment building. The architects description:

The project strives for a conscious application of architecture, elements and materials that will reinforce the site’s character. The apartment building offers modern architecture and design of high quality to its inhabitants. The experience of the historical farm should be conserved and reinforced, and the new construction will be a constituent part of the whole with a site-specific architecture of good housing. An architectural concept provides a coherent impression of the interactions between new and old, architecture and landscape. The sketch proposal underlines a clear architectural gestalt and proximity to the farm’s timber construction, as opposed to alienating formalism.

Green House - Dælenenggata 36

Facts | Architects: Element | Location

Green House - Dælenenggata 36

Infill at upper Grunerløkka. It's planned to be completed sometime during this year. The architects description:

The plot is set along a green stretch of land in the middle of Oslo. The neighboring buildings are characterized by older brick constructions in distinctive colors such as goldenrod, red, beige and green. The idea is to give the green back to the city, both in a symbolic and physical sense. The "living green" will be on the roof garden, on the ground and on the wall facing the neighboring courtyard to the northwest. The "symbolic green" are the other three facades toward the street and the park made of recycled aluminum and glass with ceramic print pattern that will provide the illusion of looking through the leaves in a tree canopy. The art also helps to solve the functional and technical requirement, like railings on the balconies and noise reduction.

Structure: 1 mm recycled aluminum in various colors that acts as a wind barrier. The next two layers are planned with 4 mm toughened glass with ceramic print, except in front of the balconies where there is a single layer made of laminated and toughened glass with ceramic print. Combined, these three layers and color schemes make the desired "green effect" in conjunction with wood as planned in all the balcony alcoves and the exterior cladding on the lower floor. As shown in the 3d illustrations it is desired that the Green House will appear green, and not with gray aluminum as issues related to reflection can pose a problem. The final colors of the aluminum and ceramic print, and the degree of transparency will be further developed.

There is established a rooftop garden (a roof garden has greater quality than a roof terrace as it is designed with approx. 70 cm soil) on the entire building's main volume and shared outdoor area which is built to the southwest and along the length of the building towards the pedestrian and cycle paths. In addition, several of the apartments have two balconies.

Somewhat poor renders:

I'm not quite sure I understand your question. Are you asking if there are any additional metro lines planned in the city? If so, then yes. There is one called Fornebubanen (which will serve a newly built suburb called Fornebu) which is currently going through planning. There are also talks about building an additional tunnel through downtown but no concrete plans have been submitted yet.

Infill Geitmyrsveien 33C

A detached block to be built in Geitmyrsveien, St Hanshaugen. The project will be located right next to the Voldsløkken apartment building shown on this very page. The architecture sadly appears to be rather boring with the most exciting thing being the roof garden if you ask me.

Shuffle - Haugerud redevelopment plan

This project won a Europan competition to redesign a suburban local center into something more passable back in 2010. I have not heard anything more about it since then and I have not been able to located any more recent info either, so I guess there is a possibility for it being completely dead. I will update this post when I find out more about it and its process.

Facts | Eriksen Skajaa | Location

Shuffle - Haugerud redevelopment plan

Description from Europan Norway:

This proposal argues for a radical new strategy that aims at infiltrating the existing structures by adding a new layer. The project makes reference to the traditional ‘tun’ organisation in Norwegian vernacular architecture, but could also be seen as an interpretation of a “garden city”, evoking a topology that has proven to be successful in the eastern parts of Oslo. The jury believes this to be an interesting house type that could contribute to a positive identity for Haugerud. The buildings create a village-like atmosphere with multifunctional structures that can be used for housing as well as public functions. The low and dense layout for the area could invest new, semi-urban qualities into the existing late-modernist plan.

However, the jury finds the proposal quite rigid and formalistic, and insensitive in that it does not really adapt to different situations. The north-south orientation of the homogeneous, repetitive scheme is questionable, and tends to detach the new centre from its surroundings in concern to orientation, infrastructure and landscape. Further, the size of the buildings appears to be under-dimensioned, and should be elaborated towards a greater degree of variety in response to the needs of the various inhabitants and family structures, thus heightening the diversity within the system. The jury also considers the hierarchy of programme and function to be problematic. The public programmes should be carefully placed in order to create a clear and useful order among public, semi-private and private spaces.

Nevertheless, we see great architectural potential in the project that could lead to an attractive and reasonable revitalisation of Haugerud.
