The masterplan proposal for Bergen’s waterfront was designed in conjunction with the Londonon Collective, which includes Haptic Architects, Gort Scott, Morris + Company and Turner Works, with Urban Systems Design and Vill, and was awarded first place in the international design competition for the redevelopment of the Laksevåg district.
The submission focused on the re-use and re-modelling of the existing buildings to create a new creative centre for the maritime industry in Bergen and the creation of new pedestrian bridge links across the water.
Review of the available archive information and local geological conditions by Elliott Wood aided the design team to assess the feasibility of extending and altering of the existing buildings on site, which shaped the overall masterplan proposal.
The project was selected as the overall winner of the Architectural Review’s Future Projects Award 2022. We are currently working with the municipality and stakeholders on strategies to realise this vision in the long term.
