Location: Sandnes, Norway

Area/size: City plan

Status: Ongoing competition

Kragh & Berglund have, together with Holscher Nordberg and Urban Creators, presented a planning study dealing with the future development of the city center, for the citizens of Sandnes. The proposal was met with VERY positive feedback, and we’re incredibly pleased (and proud!) of the result and are looking forward to the continuing process.

The planning study is based on Sandnes’ unique history and amazing scenery. Through the dissemination of the original (but now gone) landscape, the transformation of key urban spaces, and a strategy for managing rainwater, a new and better connection is created through the city, and between the city and the landscape. It is our vision that Sandnes, in the future, will be the setting for a modern, active and healthy everyday life – the equal of other larger cities in Norway. Sandnes will be a “small metropolis by the fjord”…
