Signs of Ågotnes.

Between nature and industry.

sea oil discovery

The discovery of Norwegian North Sea oil not only defined the settlement patterns of the Western coastline, but also in case of Ågotnes, the industrial village on the northern part of the island of Sotra, has brought a unique living quality to the community and the existing network. The identity of Ågotnes as the meet point of skilled labour migrants and locals, relies on a balanced relation between the industry, nature and housing. However, the sequential development has led to some rather challenging conditions such as; sharp and dividing borders, segmented pathways, semi-inaccessible dead-ends, incompatible materials and etc.

project proposal

This work and project focuses on overcoming the gated community and enhancing the living quality (whether temporary or permanent) by reconnecting nature to the settlement and bringing back its recreational context in the area. We look at nature as the common ground, smooth transition that can bring the industry and housing together.
