The main intention of this diploma is to transform a center, which lacks the ability to connect. It is about new connections, infrastructure and new public services. A fast growing center that today is ”not planned” and constructed to get away by car, than to actually staying and meeting. A small community with a beautiful shoreline that has chosen the road and roundabout as the center.
My project includes sketches of three new public buildings and bridges also. But most of all the idea of transforming the village of Søreide into a social, sustainable and functional unit connected to its landscape.
Søreide is located 20 minutes south of Bergen city by car, and has around 5,000 inhabitants and around 13,000 who use facilities such as schools and shops. Søreide is lays in the end of the Grimstadfjord and functions today as a suburban center. This is also the place I’m from.
