EQ555 - OSTMARKA RE-ENACTED Østmarka is located on one of the two prominent hilltops in Lade. Together with Ringve, it will be strengthened as an ecological haven, a viewpoint and beacon for new ways of coexistence with nature, in a time where coexistence has become an urgent necessity. The proposal will treat the site as a park, keeping the hilltops open and strengthening the ecological connections across the site.
It balances the demand for housings, the nursing home, and local urban ecologies by innovating typologies which both regenerate ecologies, adapt to terrain and foster a closer synergy between humans and nature. It places buildings on the edge of the site, framing a sequential outdoor space, which will strengthen the local forests and identity of both a historical healing landscape and cultural landscape.
