Mezinárodní soutěž
revitalizace centra města
město Klaksvik

spolupráce: Marie De France / Constance Marraud / Andreas Nordström
Klaksvik je druhé největší město Faerských ostrovů a v současnosti se potýká s odlivem investic a hlavně obyvatel. Cílem této soutěžě bylo přebudovat centrum města a nabídnout atraktivní architekturu a služby, a tím nastartovat nový rozvoj celého města.
The aim of the project was to adapt modern city planing rules to the local conditions and building tradition. Therefore we are proposing buildings organised in closed blocks with carefully planned and wind sheltered public spaces and greenery. The pedestrians will have priority in the new city, that is why we put a lot of emphasis on designing avenues, boardwalks and shared spaces. We would like to attract more people of all age groups to settle in future Klaksvik. To encourage them to move there we introduce a rich variety of housing typologies and functions. One of them will be the row house containing a studio on the bottom floor facing the street side. As new owners we can imagine both residents as well as people coming to Klaksvik with experiences from abroad, starting their micro-businesses, creating jobs and contributing to Klaksvik’s social life. Besides housing and work places we would like to create a vibrant and lively city centre with cultural, public and both day and night activities.
