The project aims to reconnect and to give continuity to a new territory exploring transitions between land and water; the goal is to create the conditions for regenerating the area into an attractive and active waterfront neighborhood. It will be linked to the city centre via a continuous park, where a new residential district of Møllendal emerges with a new role in the cityscape.

“Bergen is one of the world’s most beautiful cities,” says Eskild Andersen “But it has even greater potential. When important harbours transform to become a part of the district, with streets, squares and houses, it changes the ways we use city. Nordic — Office of Architecture is looking forward to taking part in this process in the coming years”.

The house is set among a thicket of modern villas in Tveiterås Garden City, south of Bergen city centre. Once the site of a rural farm, the suburb was laid out by pioneering local architect Leif Grung in the early 1930s.
