Trosvik Torv

6 Housing
Fredrikstad

Surface: 240 m2
Status: Ongoing

Inspired by the Swiss Art Nouveau style of the 1900s-1920s, dominant in the neighbourhood, this is a project that aims to revitalise the urban fabric with a view to vernacular conservation, but also to adapt it to the standards of contemporary life.

Facing Trosvik Torv Park, this corner building is in dialogue with its counterparts on the surrounding streets and intersections. Mansard roofs and street corner gables are emblematic of this part of the city and the building’s proportions match those of its neighbours.

While the ground floor is in the pure expression of the traditional style, the roof and first floor receive a more contemporary style and openings. It is a playful dichotomy, respectful of the past but also progressive and up to date with its time.

In an effort to continue the dominant typology of the urban fabric in which it lies, this apartment building adaptes the type of the individual house to that of the collective housing without losing the advantages of both.

It is a compact free-standing construction with functional crossing flats, each of which having access to the backyard garden.
