Bildøy - Visjon Kystby
An expansion of the Straume urban area extending to the sea, to include 3000 residential units, a marina, commercial premises and a park. This project was awarded as a direct assignment in 2006 in cooperation with Opus Bergen. This project has now arrived at the site plan stage.
Developing Straume as a regional centre for 30 000 inhabitants requires a comprehensive plan. Politicians in the municipality have been actively focusing on this for a long time, and over the last few years they have developed a thorough, detailed district and site plan which indicate how and when the various priorities will be implemented. The plans draw attention to the fact that the existing residential areas are dominated solely by detached houses, and do not meet the needs of young and elderly people. The buildings are predominantly facing a main arteri and it would be desirable to have the new development facing the sea.
The aim is to develop Straume, into a fully worthy regional service centre for Fjell, Sund, Øygarden and Bergen West, with a variety of functions and activities for residents and visitors alike. Straume will become a compact, beautiful urban place for everyone, with a clear identity.
