Strusshamn / Eriksen Skajaa Architects

Follow after the jump for additional images and a brief description by the architects. Strusshamn is a settlement on the southwest side of Askøy, an island outside of Bergen on the west coast of Norway, with strong ties to the ocean. The fjord was used for transport due to lack of roads and it was an important economic resource. When this changed and the car became the most important way of communication two centers developed without a clear connection to each other.

The site in Strusshamn is a former boat building factory for Viksund Boats that was bought by the municipality to make a new zoning plan to avoid heavy industry to be established in the future in the old, preserved harbour environment. Strusshamn has a lot of different public services and mainly small-scale cultural activity.

While the architectural style (as well as the desired building density) changed, the site layout remained stably constant. Due to the growing density in the immediate surroundings of the area, the requirements of a building on that site had to be adjusted over time. Today the heterogeneous urbanistic situation requires a boundary of space on one side – towards Nikolaiplatz–, and a significant free standing form on the other side – towards Entenplatz. * Location to be used only as a reference.

The new structure uses frameless glass walls to create light-filled interior spaces, while large cuts in the existing walls frame views of the surrounding vineyards. The mixed-use building accommodates work/live units, arts-related offices and other leased spaces. A new plinth, raised above the floodplain of the Russian River, grounds the building and provides panoramic views over the landscape. Outdoor gardens on the arms of this plinth extend like piers into a sea of vineyards. Waitakere Civil Defence Headquarters / Architectus.

The building adopts the residential scale and form of its neighbors. On a daily basis the building is occupied by up to six full time staff who operate the facility, maintain communications and facilitate training. In the event of a civil emergency the building becomes an operations centre for up to 40 civil defence staff which includes regional police and fire officers. In an emergency the building is required to be self-contained for up to five days. AD Round Up: Best from Flickr Part XLII.
