QH311 - STANDING STONE TO THE SEA

To activate the port and connect it with the center of Larvik, the first question to raise is how to cross the railway line? The easiest solution might have been to design a footbridge with an elevator to easily cross the barrier. But in our opinion, this incredible site does not deserve such a scar in the landscape. What’s more, a bird, a frog or even a lizard cannot take an elevator!The promenade creates a natural link between the old port and the high point of the Bøkkerfjellet hill, meandering like a stream and connecting the city center to the sea. Gently sloping down, the project intends to integrate everyone, from humans young and old to flora and fauna.
The library is inserted into the walkway, in a space below the promenade. As a bridge of knowledge linking the city and the water.
