KJARK, in collaboration with SJ Architects and Grindaker Landscape Architects, won the competition to develop a site in Kongsberg, Norway. The plan contains app. 8.500 m² small scale housing and commercial areas. We've made an effort to integrate the new development with the existing historic context creating quality living conditions in lush outdoor areas. The new structures drape and conceal a 15.000 m² parking house.

The Flesland extension has a bit of a Gardermoen look to it. Not a bad thing I think, but it would be fun if it had been an exact perfect copy so that frequent travellers between Bergen and Oslo wouldn't know if they had left or not.

Well, time to revive this thread! I'll be posting some projects from different cities and places in Norway, one city each post mostly, and I'll be posting both plans and things U/C. Most of this will just be me reposting stuff I find interesting from the Norwegian forums, but in a large compilation of goodies. I'll propably forget a lot of projects, so it would be nice if fellow forumers gave me a hand here by also posting different projects if they feel like it.

So without furder ado, we start off with...
Bergen! Second largest city in Norway

Most recently finished is the 14 floor high-rise, and biggest hotel in Bergen, Rica/Scandic Ørnen:


DNB Solheimsviken is done, and the pic is from DNB's flickr:


Sparebanken Vest in Jonsvollskvartalet started construction some months ago:


Also recently U/C, an office building next to the Bergen Train Station:


and the light-rail depot:




As far as high-rise plans go, there's this building in Møllendal which is meeting some opposition from locals:


and Treet, the tallest tree building in the world with its 51 metres, should start construction soon. If it already hasn't, that is:


I'll make the next post sometime in the near future :coffee:

My plan was originally to focus on Stavanger in this post, but there's a lot to write about when it comes to Stavanger, since it is an incredibly active city construction-wise. That, and a lot of project info is hidden behind paywalls in online newspapers, which is unfortunate. I will get around to Stavanger eventually, but not quite yet. So obviously the logical choice would be to write about Trondheim, no? NO, I'll go further up north than that! Why?
Because it's quite cool up there.

I know, I know, my jokes are terrible...

It's time for Finnmark, Troms and Nordland! In short, all of northern Norway. A huge area, but with a surprisingly low population of just under half a million people. That is actually less than the population of Oslo. Although, arguably, a fairly high-rise friendly half a million! So let's get onto it, with the small cities first, then large ones at the bottom.

Hammerfest is quite the active city construction-wise I'd say, considering its small size of only 10,000 people. I think this render alone covers most of the large projects there as of now:


Here's a high-rise planned in Mosjøen. Not the prettiest, but people there seem to be very positive to it:


In Harstad, Statoil is going to build their brand new northern head-quarter right in the city centre:


Now it's time for some general news and projects I'm uncertain about.

In the small town of Sortland they have just recently announced that they are very positive to build high-rises up to 15 floors tall. This is a render of a project that was announced a few years ago, while it was never built, it might give a general idea of what our friends in Sortland are capable of:


In the even smaller town of Brønnøy they were very positive about building a high-rise a couple of years ago, whether they still want to or not, I do not know. But hopefully they still like the idea:


In Mo i Rana they announced this as a plan for the city centre a couple of years ago, hopefully they are still working on it:


And lastly, in the tiny, tiny town of Kirkenes, this would be the tallest tree building in the world if constructed. There hasn't been any news about the project in a while, but I hope it will still get built:


Wow, this is already turning into a pretty big post... But it's not over yet! It's time to pull out the big guns :guns1:

Bodø:

To start off strong, the 61 meter tall high-rise, Rica/Scandic Havet, is pretty much finished and soon ready to open:

(pic found on the official facebook page for the building)

Bodø ain't scared of no high-rises and they have plans to build more of them! Here's the general plan where 2 of these still haven't been built, and the already existing 49 meter Radisson Blu Hotel is going to increase in height by adding multiple floors:

A render for one of the two mysterious high-rises under planning:


But Bodø keeps going, the hype keeps livin', and there's nobody who can stop them! Announced back in December, yet another high-rise for the city which only has a general render for now:


Now, the last Bodø project is the new city hall, which even had a competition. Not my favorite of them, but this was the winning proposal:

If interested, you can see the other proposals here

Are you tired? Too bad, because there is still one city to go! So bear with me, and get excited, because we're finishing this off with
Tromsø!

Just finished and opened, we have the very pretty 13 floor hotel, Clarion the Edge:

And under construction we have the 15 floor high-rise, Unn Patient Hotel! I took the picture from the webcam of the construction site:

and it will look like this, but taller as opposed to shorter which tends to be how it usually goes with our high-rises:


And last, but not least, an announced high-rise project in the city, which will be about 65-70 meters tall. It is not approved, but I hope it will be, because it looks dope:


Well, that's all. I think it'll be a while until the next post, but not awfully long. Maybe a couple of days to a week. :hmm:
