New opportunities at the former airport area
On the former Fornebu Airport area south of Oslo, a brand new district focusing on sustainability and a vibrating local environment for all generations is being developed. In this district, called Oksenøya, an area in the central part will house all the institutions of the entire area, including a school with a sports centre, a kindergarten, and a living and treatment centre.

Arkitema has been in charge of the design of the architectural concept of the central part of the area and will also design the future living and treatment centre for 150 senior residents. This will be a place that provides the right settings for a good life for elderly people and for contact across generations; both by creating attractive and inviting outdoor spaces and by creating spaces for common activities.

The centre is a timber structure design and scales down from five to three storeys towards the centre of the area. The bottom floor of the centre will hold several outgoing functions, including a cafe for the whole area. The top storeys will hold the residential flats and a large, green roof terrace with light, air and access to green plants.

The building will be constructed according to the Norwegian Future Built programme, which ensures a sustainable building of high quality. Moreover, the client, Bærum Municipality, has decided that the project must achieve the BREEAM Outstanding certificate.
