Ulven urban development competition

We are proud to announce that as part of the Team Veidekke (Veidekke-Main Contractor, LPO Arkitekter, Landskaperiet, Oras, YSA Design, Stema Rådgivning, Dr.techn. Olav Olsen, Rambøll, Brekke & Strand Akustikk, Erichsen & Horgen and NGI) we have won the innovation competition for the Ulven urban development project. This is one of OBOS (Norwegian housing association) biggest development projects ever. The number of new dwellings is estimated to 3,000 units of varying sizes.

Presently the Ulven site consists of small industrial properties close to the main motorway from Oslo going north, and is not really very attractive. The challenges would be noise and lack of nature, but most of all to get as a many units on one site to look aesthetically and welcoming.

The concept is all about excellent user friendly apartments to affordable prizes. This will give a vital contribution to Oslo housing market.
