c.f. møller's urban development plan in oslo will become a global model for sustainability

the centerpoint of norway‘s capital is the oslo central station, which serves as an entry point to the populous city from the rest of the world. kristin jarmund architects, c.f. møller architects and rodeo architects with bollinger & grohmann engineers and transsolar develop a regulation plan for KLP eiendom, ‘bishop gunnerus gate 14B’. the project is a further development of the winner proposal to kristin jarmund arkitekter and c.f. møller architects in a prequalified architectural competition in 2009.

management company KLP eiendom’s ambition is that scandinavian based firm c.f. møller architects‘ ‘BG14B’ will become an international model project for eco-friendly design and sustainability. BG14B will strengthen the area’s development and clarify the oslo municipality’s ambition to make the city adapted to soft road users and more attractive as a place of residence. in the meeting between oslo central station, the neighborhood vaterland and the neighboring greenland, the qualities of the subdivisions are further developed. the project provides a clear urban squad where subdivisions are bound together and facilitated for good and efficient mobility.

today, existing buildings comprise 100% of the site’s area, with this project becoming more than 50% of the area available to public urban space. a coherent and new terrain is being established in continuation of the green structure along akerselva, where water is emphasized as an adventure element.

c.f. møller’s project consists of two building volumes that stand on a common base connected through a public square. the western building is a hotel, while the east has primary function as an office. the buildings are broken down into partial volumes that refer to the city silhouette around. the terraces are used for roof gardens and to provide good indoor contact with the city, at large openings that also reveal the vertical city of the urban landscape.
