Nordre gate 20-22, Oslo

Alliance's insight:

In the roof garden in Nordre gate 20-22, we are currently designing a small piece of everyday happiness in the shape of a greenhouse – right in the heart of the city, on the roof!  This is for all future residents and we are also adding an outdoor kitchen to strengthen the micro community, enjoy long summer evenings and get to know each other better in the city! 

 

We are using recycled materials throughout to help protect our natural resources while also focusing on waste reduction in the construction industry. We are working on the project in cooperation with Resirqel.

Haslum Elvepark

Alliance's insight:

The zoning plan for Neslia 1 and Nesveien 11 has been approved by the city council of Bærum! The objective is to transform the industrial area into an attractive residen­tial area in accordance with overall guidelines on densification and transformation in collaboration with property developer Vedal.  An important pre-condition for the landowner has been to develop a project adding qualities to its surroundings.

The residential development increases the availability to the Øverland river and the adjacent green areas to the local community. The new project facilitates an increased width of the zone at the river’s edge, creating new playgrounds along a common foot path, mean­dering through the area. The buildings are designed to bring qualities to residents both within and outside the project through a variation of spatial and material quali­ties. Overall goals are to absorb the increase in traffic mainly through public transportation, bicycling and walking.

Grønlandsleiret no. 27 is close to nearing completion | Latest news | Scoop.it

Grønlandsleiret

Alliance's insight:

We are so excited, the residential project at Grønlandsleiret no. 27 is close to nearing completion! 

 

On behalf of our client Stormgård and together with NP Bygg AS, this is of many transformation projects the office has been involved in, and we love the sustainability aspects of this one. In a larger perspective, the project is part of an urban densification of Oslo city center, catering to a sustainable growth within the already existing hub. 

 

Previously being home to offices, the premises now boasts 35 brand new apartments ranging from 40 to 100 square metres. The original, modernistic building designed by Hjalmar S. Bakstad in 1959 has been stripped down to its structure, then reconstructed in compliance with present rules, regulations and technology. A new top floor has been added, providing stunning views both towards the north and south. All apartments facing south, towards the backyard, are provided with private balconies overlooking the large common roof terrace at level 3. The penthouse apartments have terraces due north. 

 

The total reconstruction includes new facade insulation topped with plaster, echoing the modernistic features of the original building. The building will be ready to welcome new residents in February 2019.

We are strengthening and developing Alliance architecture studio

Alliance architecture studio

Alliance's insight:

To strengthen and develop our business model, we have dissolved the holding company Allark AS. This was to ensure that Alliance architecture studio now is, and will continue to be, a workplace owned 100 % by its own workforce.

 

"We look forward to the opportunity that this opens for us," says CEO Asger Hedegaard Christensen. "This means, among other things, that we will invite more employees into ownership.".

 

Alliance architecture studio has also recently scaled down its Stavanger department, which in its new form it will be a satellite office under the Oslo headquarter. This will allow us to focus on developing our project processes from the headquarters, with a clear goal of strengthening our company’s position in Stavanger in the future.

 

We continue to increase our expertise in sustainable architecture and focus on growth through carefully selected cooperation primarily in Norway and Scandinavia. We are going to use our energy on what Alliance does best: good architecture and innovative urban planning.

 

We are very excited to offer a smoother and simplified organisation that will benefit both our customers, partners and employees.

50th Anniversary conference of the Club of Rome

50th Anniversary conference of the Club of Rome | Latest news | Scoop.it

Rome, Vatican City

Alliance's insight:

 

In 1972 the Club of Rome published “The Limits to Growth”, the celebrated report commissioned from MIT researchers, which had a huge impact on the public and the media by questioning the principle of infinite growth.

 

On the 17th and 18th of October the Club of Rome will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a series of conferences mainly dedicated to circular economy and decarbonization. All speakers are leaders in the fields of economics, science, politics and industry. The first session will be led by Gunter Pauli (Zero Emissions Research and Initiatives), and Jørgen Randers (the Norwegian Business School).

 

In order to fuel our thinking and our efforts to develop sustainable solutions within architecture, urban planning and design, our head of media & strategic design, Pierre-Elie Coursac, will attend the two days of conferences in Rome. He will be happy to meet you if you are also going to this great event and if you wish to discuss potential collaborations or partnerships.

Alliance chosen to lead the work with developing a new master plan in Drammen | Latest news | Scoop.it

Skalstadskogen in Drammen kommune

Alliance's insight:

We look forward to starting up the master plan for Skalstadskogen in Drammen commune for Drammen Kommune Eiendomsutvikling AS and Selvaag Bolig ASA! The team consisting of Alliance architecture studio together with Sweconorge and Ecofact will form a base for innovation and sustainable design.

 

The Skalstadskogen area, with covers almost 900 000 m², will be a significant part of Konnerud. Therefore, we believe it is important that the master plan for Skalstadskogen will focus on good architecture, based on a solid and user centric urban plan.

 

In order to succeed, it will therefore be necessary to create effective conditions for collective intelligence by making the contribution of local residents and all the parties involved a concrete element in the preparation of the plan. 

 

Important aspects will be green mobility, great common outdoor areas and a development that takes into account that Skalstadskogen should both be inhabited and developed over decades.

Amund Schweder

Alliance's insight:

We are very pleased to welcome Amund Schweder at Alliance! He recently joined our Oslo office as an architect.

 

Amund graduated as a Master of Architecture at The Oslo School of Architecture in 2009.  In his diploma "Kretsløpsurbanisme" ("Circular Urbanism"), he explored how cities can physically adapt to and promote a circular economy, and more specifically how the city's waste industry can be better integrated in an urban context. In the past five years he has mainly worked on zoning plans for the city of Oslo within the planning and building authorities. Previously, the planning office of the Municipality of Tromsø had Amund conduct various feasibility studies and create and organize an exhibition devoted to the development of the city. 

 

''I am very happy to be a part of Alliance. I look forward to contributing to projects of all sizes that offer high quality and functionality, while promoting a sustainable development of our rural and urban areas!''

Signo — Housing project for deafblind by Alliance

Alliance's insight:

NGO Signo has asked Alliance to work on a housing project for deafblind in Sandefjord. They are eager to build a home and not an institution, so before Easter we delivered a feasibility study based on the idea of a village. The core concept is to design a safe place that can be explored with hands and feet. The quality of movement and choice of materials are of course paramount in this project.
