arkitekter, in cooperation with SWECO Norge AS, has won the contract for the extension of Bergen Light Rail (Bybanen).
The Commissioner announced that the winning team submitted the best approach to the assignment. The team brings added-value, highlighting that important success criterion and focus areas for the project were described, and that the team demonstrated a focus on method, teamwork and process that gave a good and credible task-description of the various phases of the project.
3RW arkitekter will be responsible for several disciplines, such as architecture and urban planning, and the company will also take on leading roles for the master planning of the extensions of the Light Rail to Fyllingsdalen.
Extensive urban transformation will take place along the tracks in the coming period. Through the upcoming work, the first steps of this transformation will be designed.
3RW arkitekter are delighted to participate in this design process. We see here a unique opportunity to help shape the future allure of Bergen’s urban community, increasingly integrated, dense and forward-looking.
Our commitment to rethink the civic function, symbolism and added-value of the Light Rail as one of Bergen’s prominent urban actor is at the core of our design work to come.
