Byhagen apartment complex, Bergen
Byhagen is located in Åsane in Bergen and is part of the Lonaparken development area which is an important part of the transformation of Åsane into an urban district.
The whole project is an extension of the pedestrian axis from Horisont shopping centre and has a generous park area. The two buildings in Byhagen surround the park and most of the apartments have large balconies facing the park area. The park is accessible to everyone and is arranged with benches for thought and perhaps a random chat. The distinctive architecture of the balconies contributes to create a varied and exciting facade and gives life to the street with people and plants on all floors. The project has a total of 111 flats of various sizes, from one-bedroom to spacious family apartments. This mixture helps to create a good and varied neighbourhood. The whole area is completely car-free and great emphasis has been placed on the outdoor areas. Play grounds, footpaths and bicycle paths, a large square with stairways down to the stream, water mirrors and paths with benches invites everyone with a passion for exploration and adventure to enjoy this outdoor space.
Byhagen was elected "Apartment Project of the Year" in 2019 by the Housing Producers' Association.
