From the architect. This project is part of a masterplan that looks to develop a reclaimed  area of the Tromsø strait. It's amazing what is being done in Europe in terms of new dwellings. The construction of the rest of the masterplan is currently in progress.

Strandkanten is a new housing area just south of the centre of Tromsø, attractively situated on a reclaimed area in the Tromsø strait. This area is an important part of the city's development strategy, where a concentrated growth from within will strengthen the activity in the centre and reduce the need for transportation.

The entire area is expected to be developed with 900 dwellings on a site of 88 decar.

The development plan is concentrating on ensuring the quality of the outdoor areas as well as maintaining the high density. The contents and quality of the outdoor areas will be a deciding factor for the development of the area.

In 2003-2007 area III was built with 70°N arkitektur as architect. K9 in area V, also by 70°N arkitektur is to be finished in 2009.

In addition to area III, construction has also been started in area II, IV, VII and VIII, with buildings of different architects such as Dahl + Uhre arkitekter, boarc, Voll Arkitekter and code: arkitektur as well as 70°N arkitektur.

It's a drunken architecture perfect for the place... not recommended anywhere else... I admire a sensitivity of a designer(s)...

Right scale, good planning, appealling aesthetics, interesting spaces, quality in its construction... That's an excellent design. It deserves as much exposure as it can get. Congratulations!
