Elnesvågen Urban Development
Short and long-term strategies to develop a vibrant and inviting center for residents, visitors and tourists in Elnesvågen.
In 2020 Elnesvågen will become the main meeting place for the Hustadvika municipality, where the residents can do their daily official tasks as well as other leisure activities. The project shows how the center can develop — from a regional perspective to clearly defined suggestions on different local suitable initiatives.
Great emphasis has been put on the placement of programs such as new sports areas, primary school, cultural building, and the town hall. The synergies between these programs create limitless new possibilities for the local community.
The project illustrates how the center area can strengthen its contact with the fjord, create attractive urban spaces, improve accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists, highlight green structures and present new micro-climate and energy systems. The submission included strategies for implementation as a tool for politicians to ensure future development.
