Music to my ears
UH232 - MUSIC TO MY EARS
With Norway’s aging population set to double by 2040, the need for innovative healthcare solutions has never been greater. Addressing this, our project in Lade integrates music as a tool for care, therapy, and leisure, fostering a vibrant, multi-generational community. Through music, we envision a transformation of nursing homes into dynamic social hubs, benefiting mental health and wellbeing. This music-focused ecosystem resonates with Lade's cultural values at the scale of the new neighbourhood that radically reuses the existing hospital housing, transforming them into generous affordable and generational homes. The landscape is preserved and enhanced with sound-paths and viewpoints giving it access while curating outdoors for food production and nature sanctuaries for wild-life.
