representative and flexible space
Østervold is an atypical large open and axially urban space which differs from the city's dense centre with winding streets and small squares.
Our proposal focuses on this contrast by refining the topography, movements and meetings. It is with a minimalist and representative architecture in only granite, steel and wood. At the same time, we also want to create simplicity in the plan by linking the city to Østervold. Changing the traffic logistic we create a new multi flexible use of Østervold.
