Winning entry for the international competition to re-design Laksevåg waterfront district drawn by a team featuring representatives of Haptic Architects, Gort Scott, Morris and Company and Turner Works. The proposal aims to restore and redevelop the former shipbuilding area into a creative and productive centre of maritime industry for the 21st century.

The proposals focus on the notion of surgical repair and remodelling, with a circular philosophy of retention and reuse as the foundation of the concept. The results have no stand-out ‘eye catching’ buildings.

The design propose a renewal of the Indre Laksevåg district that puts production, in particular that with connection to the sea, at its core. A densified district of diversified fields and means of production all sit side by side in one neighbourhood. The aim simply is to not wipe away a centuries old connection of working the sea, but to allow for Indre Laksevåg to adapt so that it might continue to play host to Bergen’s seafaring identity.
