Commitment to quality is required when designing a residential building in one of the most distinguished neighborhoods in Norway. In Kristiansand, all new architecture should be a response to the architectural heritage of the city, as well as modern demands and ideals.

Kvadraturen, referring to the city center based on the master plan of 1642, is one of the most distinctive and beautiful urban residential areas in Norway. It comprises 54 rectangular blocks, and Østre Strandgate is the eastern perimeter of Kvadraturen towards the harbor with its parks, jetties, beach and fortress. The project is adjacent to the beach promenade and charming harbor, and the flats will enjoy views towards the archipelago of Kristiansand and the Skagerrak strait.

Østre Strandgate 60 features large windows, generous verandas and welcoming entrances, and is intended to be a warm and friendly addition to its neighborhood. The generous flats within are designed for those who appreciate large, flexible spaces and other features usually associated with villas. We expect most buyers will be previous villa owners seeking less upkeep, comfortable living and modern spaces.

Designing a residential building on this site is both a privilege and a challenge. Adapting to the scale and architectural context is of the essence, as is a confident waterfront appearance and the use of long-lasting high quality materials and finishes. We have strived for the sweet spot between humbleness and prominence for this project, with our mind set on a modern and sincere tribute to the good life of southern Norway.

All in all it’s about making the best of what we believe is the finest site of its kind.

Vi bevarer så mye vi kan, for å ta vare på et bygg med mye historie, og nyskapning fra starten av forrige århundre🎞

@magnuspettersen har vært på befaring i Kjølberggata, @factorytoyen Materialene og strukturene er valgt ut for å stå i kontrast til, og komplimentere det eksisterende bygget. Tilføringene er enkle, med klare linjer og farger, for å skape gode arbeidsplasser for framtiden🏼‍♀️🏼‍♂️ 📸
