In 1989, Vestbo, a local housing cooperation acquired a stunning site 10 minutes north from Bergen.
The plot is up in the hillside and has spectacular views over the fjord leading into the Bergen harbor.
Vestbo developed most of the land before the year 2000, but one plot had been preserved due to a high power line above that went over it and made it uninhabitable due to electrical radiation, In 2008 the power company dismantled the power line and put it underground. Suddenly the possibility for a new housing development arose.

Fornebu S is the latest contribution to Fornebulandet, a peninsula alongside Oslofjord, currently in the process of urban renewal. The centre’s strategic siting gives residents of Snarøya and Fornebu access to a much needed shopping precinct and meeting place. The main square provides an active connection to the centre and an important node for the orientation and gathering of people in the area. The square consists of restaurants, cafes and a cultural arena to magnify the bustling life of the area both during and after closing times.

Bergen University College brings together the engineer, teacher and health educations in one new building complex. The college is built on a former railway depot site, where new buildings blend in, regards being taken to the layout of the rails, with the original structures.
The school is designed as a serpentine shape winding its way through the old structures, thus creating intimate courtyards and nice outdoor spaces for the Kronstad quarter.
