Project overview
Oslo’s Fjord City project is planned to be one of the most exciting waterfront developments in Europe. Over the next 20 years, 225 hectares of docklands will become places where people can live, work and be ‘next to the sea’. Filipstad, at the heart of the Fjord City, is seen by many as the site into which the city centre can most easily extend.

Until now, there have been conflicting views on the site’s potential value: the port authority and current site owners want to maximise the economic benefits whereas the municipality wants to balance new housing and business locations with parks, recreational spaces and cultural facilities. S333’s task was to provide a robust urban vision that could help resolve these two opposing ambitions.
