Unusual construction techniques at ‘Støperiet’, The Foundry, Bergen.

The Norwegians may be considered one of Europe’s most conservative societies but the designers at Link Arkitektur AS in Bergen are certainly having some fun with their designs. This new residential project overhang’s the preserved facade of an old foundry. The renovation of the old foundry into a shop will be the next stage of the project.

Damsgård district of Bergen where the project is located has long been a centre for industry, with it’s ideal proximity to the fjord for offloading goods. As the population of Bergen has increased Damsgård has rapidly become the perfect location for medium scale, high quality, property developments. Stunning views out to sea will provide the future residents of Støperiet with an intimate maritime experience, while Link Arkitektur’s design will challenge conventional nordic construction techniques.
