Fyllingsdalen We are inventing Fyllingsdalen

Out of the shadow: It’s time to lay the suburban logic in landfills for good and fulfil the potential of Fyllingsdalen as a vital and urban district.
Fyllingsdalen got its name from the farm Fyllingen, possibly deriving from Old Norse fela, meaning to hide. In this case the name is quite suitable, for it is not the beating heart of Bergen we are talking about. A suburb built by classical ideals – built to house a population in an efficient manner. And nothing more.
Therefore, since the 1950’s there is something unresolved with the whole area. While the population has risen steadily, the urban structures has not been upgraded in the same way. And we in Mad Architects mean simply that Fyllingsdalen must be reinvented.
Bergen is growing
It must have been a good day in the community when it was decided that Fyllingsdalen, not Åsane, should be favored with Step 4 in the development of the light rail. In addition, there is still a considerable growth in population in the Bergen area. And Fyllingsdalen will, as one of several defined district centres, help solve the municipality’s challenge revolving housing and social infrastructure.
This study looks at prerequisites in solving this practical task, as we examine how densification and new square footage also can create the foundation for an entirely different kind of city in Fyllingsdalen through strategic densification.
Along with Norconsult, Mad Architects suggest a differentiated densification strategy, in which the municipality next to being the regulatory authorities also take the role of a central development group to ensure the development of a sustainable district centre. Good development and utilization of city centres are key success criteria for growth over the next few years.
The potential for densification within the building zone of today is calculated according to three levels:
1) top level,
2) mapping and
3) case studies
The evaluations are made with particular regard to strengthening the number of customers for public transport and respecting current qualities in Fyllingsdalen.
With their facilities, workplaces and public transport connection, the shopping mall Oasen becomes a natural focal point when the epicentre of densification are to be defined at the top level.
After follows a mapping in which all relevant areas are evaluated in the suitability for densification, measured against qualities that may simultaneously speak against, such as agricultural interests and protection of nature.
But these analyses never take us all the way. In the end it is all supposed to be broken down into houses. And with three main types, studied in various case studies, we believe that we can respond to both to Fyllingsdalen’s practical needs and to what the housing shortage concerns, while facilitating a city that is both environmentally and socially sustainable.
By working with both urban houses, shared housing and larger units, we hope to take all top level ideas and break them down into the architectural response that ultimately decide whether this will be a successful project or not.
The railway will bring a new era to Fyllingsdalen. Mad has ensured that the former suburb is properly prepared, and can make the most of the situation.
Sjøgata 27 is a transformation uttermost of the quayside in Bodø, north of Norway. We’re opening the building towards the city, to expose what’s typically hidden inside galleries. The facade is in constantly change, and creates a special atmosphere along the quayside. We’re hoping for Bodø’s next @jeffkoons or @banksy
Spikerverket Mixed use architecture is the typology every urbanist like to talk about, and here’s an example #Spikerverket in @destinasjonnydalen combines a traditional housing area with a denser urban structure, which forms different public and semipublic squares Spatial sequences are open for both citizens, clerical workers and the neighborhood in general.
