I dialog med omkringliggende bebyggelse er det nye leilighetsbygget på Utsikten en moderne nytolkning av de nærliggende studentboligene fra 70-tallet. 

Bygget ligger i et bratt og eksponert svaberg, og står på en solid betongbase tilpasset topografien. Trestrukturen strekker seg utover med store balkonger og brede takutstikk. De synlige bjelkene i taket, materialiteten, bygningens proporsjoner og bidrar til å lese strukturen og gir bygget et japandisk tilsnitt.

Hver leilighet i bygningens tre etasjer får en enestående og åpen utsikt over Glomma, Gamlebyen, Fredrikstadbrua og helt til sjøen.

Areal: 25 000 m2
Status: Unbuilt

The development area is located between the river and the existing housing estate of Gressvik Floa. The area has been used by the boating industry and has a lot of asphalt and impervious surfaces. The area has great potential to become a unique and prosperous river district. The change from an industrial to a residential area is an opportunity to reintroduce biodiversity and return the waterfront to public space.

 

Parts of the project are in the area to be considered for the cultural environment. The structure and architecture of the project therefore adapted to the existing buildings. The lines of sight from the residential area are considered in the layout and form large openings through the site. The buildings slopes towards the existing houses and the main farm of Gressvik to open the view even more.

 

Pleasant and attractive neighborhoods are created with a close-to-Nature living environment and informal meeting places. The river frontage connects the service areas along the river, from the harbor, the neighborhood playground and a café at the ferry landing, revitalizing it and making it accessible to all. The project restores biodiversity and greenery to the neighborhood. This allows for a good quality of life and the possibility of various outdoor activities.

 

The buildings are mainly oriented in a north-south direction. This allows sunlight to penetrate in the common and private outdoor areas throughout the day. Moreover, it is effective orientation for natural ventilation, and stretch the West and East, increasing the exposed facades toward the view. The terraces and balconies are ideally exposed to the river or the setting sun.

In this parallel assignment, Line Solgaard Arkitekter was chosen as the architect for the development of the Stjernehall site in Fredrikstad. The winning project was developed in collaboration with Studio Sted, NaturRestauering, Erichsen & Horgen and urban development and social scientist Erling Dokk Holm.

Nature and neighbourhood are the main features of this housing development. The existing greenway leading to the forest is preserved and reaffirms a need for continuity, both in use, so as not to disrupt the habits of the community, and physically, linking the project to the city and the forest on its outskirts. The greenway provides access to the different areas of the neighbourhood, dwells playgrounds, greenhouses, outdoor sport equipments, and gives a close proximity to greenery for every home, but also helps with rainwater management thanks to rain beds.

The dwellings are organized around three courtyards. A variety of house types and sizes ensures a dynamic neighbourhood, granting housing accessibility to a broad range of family types and promoting social diversity. Each building has an entrance from the common space of the courtyard, assuring spontaneous social interactions to help prevent social isolation. In addition, each home has access to private gardens or well-exposed terrasses. This project seeks to improve neighbour relationships by creating a sustainable way of living and sense of community.

Surface: 17 000 m2
Status: Ongoing

This garden city inspired neighbourhood project on the outskirts of Fredrikstad focuses on quality of life, community and nature. The project has been drawn in collaboration with Studio Sted and Ghilardi+Hellsten Arkitekter. It features many building typologies, gathered around common courtyards and surrounded by public parks. This layout promotes social interaction and social diversity to create a sense of community and improve neighbour interactions. In order to achieve a significant degree of self-sufficiency, some of the buildings house shops and small businesses, public gardens and allotments offer the opportunity to grow vegetables, and the parks have playgrounds and outdoor sports facilities. In this way, neighbourhood life is very self-sustaining and promotes the local economy for a sustainable lifestyle.

The building typologies in the project vary from terraced houses to denser flats, as well as the rehabilitation and conservation of existing buildings. The preservation of existing buildings is both a decarbonized way of reducing building costs, but also of maintaining the identity of the site and reactivating buildings otherwise obsequious with only minor interventions.
