Nøstet Panorama, with its commerce and homes, is in a good, central location along the waterfront in Nøstet in the heart of Bergen.
The building elements are layered, sometimes tapered and twisted into place with the short side facing the sea. Clever positioning ensures that all 98 homes have sea views and enjoy plenty of sunshine. Safeguarding the public area will also guarantee air, light and the visibility for the existing buildings on the slope behind. In line with the guidelines of the Municipal District Plan on openness towards the sea, the shape and location of these buildings will guarantee public communications in connection with Nøstebukten and improve public access to the area and the sea. The project will promote a variety of outdoor situations which will encourage public activity. The shape of the building volumes will create three new locations open for public communications. The project will help to revitalise the street, the fjord and the local area.
